Living in Wilmington, disasters can happen at any time. By taking the time to create an emergency supplies kit, your family will be prepared in the event of a disaster. The kit also helps children feel more secure knowing it is there in case of an emergency.
The supplies can be kept in a plastic tub or other container. Below is a partial list.
Water – one gallon per person per day for drinking and sanitation — store 3-day supply
Ready-to-eat food, canned juices, canned meats (easy open) — at least a 3-day supply
