Disasters can strike at anytime and anywhere so make sure that you have supplies stored at home, in your car and at school or work.  When organizing your emergency supplies don’t forget about the special needs of your pets, young and elderly family members and those with disabilities.

These videos from PreparedBC will help you better understand what supplies you may need in an emergency, as well as the difference between shelter-in-place kits and Grab-and-Go bags

Building an Emergency Kit

Grab-and-Go Bag

Emergency Kit VS. Grab-and-Go Bag


Keep emergency supplies that you will most likely need during an evacuation in a grab-and-go kit stored in an easy to carry container that is accessible should you need to leave your home quickly. Ensure all family members know where the emergency supplies are.

Don’t forget to check your batteries and rotate your food, water, and medication supplies.
