Evacuation Kit

What is an Evacuation Kit?

It is a kit, or bag, full of everything that you will need to live/survive in the case of an emergency evacuation. Make sure to put all of your supplies in a sturdy, easy to carry bag that you can easily grab on the way out.

Fill it with at least 3 days worth of goods, which you can find most of at home stores or Daiso. Keep it in an easy to reach place like near your front door. It’s also also a good idea to keep a smaller kit in your car!
