Emergency Supply Kit
Everyone should prepare an Emergency Supply Kit to assist them through a crisis. Not all services and items will be immediately available following a large emergency.
You should consider having an emergency kit in your home, apartment or residence hall. If you own a vehicle, you should consider also having a smaller kit in your car.
These are basic items to allow you to endure an emergency situation for a short period of time. You can add additional items as needed:
•Bottled water and canned/packaged food
•Manual can opener
•Radio (battery or crank charge)
•Extra batteries for radio & light
•Toiletries (toothbrush, toothpaste,shampoo, soap, comb/brush)
•First Aid Kit
•Flashlight (battery or crank charge)and emergency light sticks
•Blanket (emergency type)
•Safety whistle (to attract attention)
•Dust Mask & Surgical Gloves
If you need to evacuate during an emergency, take your Emergency Supply Kit with you. Don’t forget your: Keys, Identification (BC ID, Drivers License, etc), Wallet/Purse, Money/ Credit Cards, Cell-phone and Charger.
