Emergency Kits don’t have to be a task too difficult to tackle. September is National Preparedness month, just in time for winter and the State of Alaska has a handy 24-week, step-by-step guide to making your own kit.
Glenda Landua, with the Borough Office of Emergency Management, said a 7-day emergency kit can be stored in a simple bucket. In times of power outages or emergencies, it can make the difference between needing rescue and being able to take care of your family.
The plan lists several items you can add to your grocery cart each week, as well as several steps to take, to ensure you have everything you need if an emergency hits.
Landua said they’ve been giving the plans out to businesses and families, and you can find plenty of information on the Borough’s website.
