A look at a 72-hour emergency kit presented by Clackamas Fire District No. 1 Emergency Manager, Gregg Ramirez.
Keep in mind that 72-hour emergency kits should be tailored to the individual needs. It is perfectly okay to build your kit piece by piece, rather than spend the money to do it all at the same time. Check around your house before you buy items for your kit.
Remember that emergencies can be natural or man-made. A car striking a light pole can cause power outage to many areas. A thunderstorm with lightening can take away power.
Be ready for the unknown.
