You are the first responder to your own family, as well as to yourself. Have a personalized kit ready to go that contains items you will need and food you will eat. If you or a family member has a medical condition, make sure your kit contains the medicine and healthcare essentials they may need. Most kits are for 72 hours but we have seen with past disasters, the need could be for a week or more. Kits can be assembled yourself using a bucket, backpack, or suite case.
