Union County Emergency Operations Plan


Disaster Supply Kit
Disaster can strike quickly and without warning. It can force you to evacuate your neighborhood or confine you to your home. Every family should have a Disaster Supply Kit to help during this time.In a disaster such as a hurricane or earthquake you might be without electricity and the water supply may be polluted. During a flood or winter storm you may not be able to leave your house for a few days and you will need to rely on yourself. Store items in sturdy, easy-to-carry containers such as back-packs,duffle bags,or covered trash containers. Remember, your family will probably never need to use your kit, but it's always better to be prepared. 

Some important items to store in your kit include:
Water
Food
First Aid
