Focus on the essentials - the things you need everyday - and stock your kit with enough of those items to get you through 72 hours.
- Draft an evacuation route - how you'll safely exit your home and/or take shelter.
- Create a contact list - who you'll reach out to if you and your family are separated.
- Store your contact list and ready kit - where you can easily access them in case of emergency. In a closet near the front or back door, in the garage. Just make sure everyone knows where it is and that they can access it.
