How To Build An Emergency Kit

Stay Safe. Please Be Prepared.

Right now our thoughts are with our friends and families (and your friends and families) in particularly vulnerable areas of the U.S. With severe storms en route and looming large, we wanted to send along some resources for you, because we can’t say it enough: preparedness is key. Preparing for emergencies like a natural disaster may not always be at the forefront of your mind, but it doesn’t take much time or money to put together an emergency plan for the different areas of your life (home, work, car). And that time building an emergency kit will be well-spent, and peace of mind well-earned should the power go out and day-to-day life be interrupted.

If you or someone you care for is in an area that is prone to severe storms, like hurricanes, here are a few articles that may help with the planning process:

We've also built a few infographics that go through the process of building an emergency kit for the places you spend a lot of time including your home, car, and workplace. Here's a look at how to build an emergency kit for your home:

Along with the severe weather threats, September also marks National Preparedness Month. This month helps remind us of the significance of building out an emergency plan and that you can never be too prepared.
