    FAMILY SUPPLY LIST

    Ready Kids & The Federal Emergency Management Agency present:

    Family Supply List

    Emergency Supplies:
    Water, food, and clean air are important things to have if an emergency happens. Each family or individual's kit should be customized to meet specific needs, such as medications and infant formula. It should also be customized to include important family documents.

    Recommended Supplies to Include in a Basic Kit:
    - Water, one gallon of water per person per day, for drinking and sanitation
    - Food, at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food
    - Battery-powered radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert, and extra batteries for both
    - Flashlight and extra batteries

    - Wrench or pliers to turn off utilities
    - Can opener for food (if kit contains canned food)

Rethink your clothing and bedding supplies to account for growing children and other family changes. One complete change of warm clothing and shoes per person, including:
    - A jacket or coat
    - Long pants
    - A long sleeve shirt
    - Sturdy shoes
    - A hat and gloves

    It is not how warm the water is on the surface. It also how deep the warm water in regards to tropical cyclone development.
