In the last section,
you learned how to complete your magnet
and put it on the refrigerator.
Now, we will show you how to put the emergency kit together.
Remember, think about what needs to go in your kit.
Use your worksheet to guide you in what to put in your kit.
Think about the basic items you will need.
First, let's talk about what type of bag
or container you will use.
There are several options you can use.
A plastic container,
a rolling suitcase,
a backpack or a duffel bag.
A rolling backpack or a duffel bag are fantastic.
And with a label with each person's name,
so there's no confusion of what items belong
to each person.
Choosing a container means that you must be able
to carry it for three days with all your supplies in it.
I put important things in my backpack
and make sure they're light, so I can move around with it.
Next, decide the food, water, flashlight
and other supplies you may need.
Remember, if you have any pets or service animals,
please make sure you have food and other items for them.
I'll make sure to grab our dogs with their food and water.
Personalize your kit with your name tag
or other information
that could help you identify your bag as the emergency kit.
Place your worksheet,
I will ensure that everybody has an emergency supply kit
that's labeled with their names,
and that everybody knows what's in those kits
and how to use the items in those kits.
money and your important documents
into a plastic bag, so they can be safe.
And now, what we want to make sure
is that we always have our plan with us.
So, we're gonna go ahead and put this in a Ziploc bag
just in case water gets to it.
So, somebody can read it
in the event that we're not able to respond.
And we're also going to need money.
So, we want to make sure we have some money in here
for an emergency.
You want to go ahead and put that in the duffel bag,
so that we always know where it is.
And in case you guys can't respond,
or, maybe, I can't respond, you're gonna resort to it,
and you're gonna make sure to tell people this is where...
It will tell you what our medications are,
you know, where we go to the doctor
and what do we need, okay?
So, we're gonna put this in here.
Make sure you have batteries
for all the equipment you need.
Have personal items that are important to you
such as toothbrush, toothpaste,
in the kit.
Choose foods that are easy to open and pack.
Remember to keep a list of your medication information.
When your kit is complete,
place it in your home where it is accessible
and easy to take with you when you leave.
Also, check your emergency kit each month for expired food.
With your worksheet, magnet and kit in place,
make sure you practice your evacuation plan.
Know where you are going.
Have close-toed shoes in your kit
for walking in dangerous areas and know where to find help.
And in the case of living in the rural area
where wildfires occur,
we're gonna make sure that we have
our emergency kit together
and have evacuation routes planned,
so in case we need to leave quickly and efficiently,
we can do so.
And we can gather our kit,
we can gather the family and the animals,
and we can evacuate quickly and safely
without entering an area of danger.
