What to put your supplies in - Having supplies in different areas can mean not having time, or forgetting, things you may need if you need to evacuate. Consider these options when gathering your supplies in one place:
- Storage Tubs – Place items in one or two large tubs that can be sealed. Remember to keep them in climate-controlled areas to prevent items from degrading.
- Backpacks, Duffle Bags, or Suitcases – Build an individual kit for each person and place these items in a backpack that can be grabbed quickly on the way out the door or to your shelter location.
Remember, these are ideas. You may not need or have room for everything list on these pages. Prioritize what is important, then if you have room, add the nice-to-have items.
