Fires, Flooding, Power outages, Storms, Heatwaves, Cyclones, Earthquakes... Australia is not immune to natural disasters and for to many these events happen and they are not prepared. Why? Because they often put it off or think that it wont happen to them. For a little bit of time, and spending a little bit of money you can be prepared.
Being prepared means being equipped with the proper supplies you may need in the event of an emergency or disaster. Keep your supplies in an easy-to-carry emergency preparedness kit that you can use at home or take with you in case you must evacuate.
At a minimum, you should have the basic supplies listed below:
Water: 4 Litres per person, per day (3-day supply for evacuation, 2-week supply for home)
Food: non-perishable, easy-to-prepare items (3-day supply for evacuation, 2-week supply for home).
Pet supplies (collar, leash, ID, food, carrier, bowl)
Extra set of car keys and house keys
Manual can opener
Additional supplies to keep at home or in your survival kit based on the types of disasters common to your area:
N95 or surgical masks
Tools/supplies for securing your home
Extra clothing, hat and sturdy shoes
Household liquid bleach
Blankets or sleeping bags
