Maintaining Your Emergency Kit

The theme for this past week’s blog posts was to make an emergency kit. We talked about your home, vehicle, and pet emergency kits. After assembling your kit remember to maintain it so it’s ready when needed:

  • Keep canned food in a cool, dry place
  • Store boxed food in tightly closed plastic or metal containers
  • Replace expired items as needed
  • Re-think your needs every year and update your kit as your family’s needs change

By regularly maintaining your kit, you can be assured it will meet your needs whenever an emergency may happen.
