A diverse society is one that caters to a diversity of needs. This idea is put to the test each time there's a disaster. By properly preparing for each person's emergency needs, we help ensure that we as a society can survive any catastrophe. Find out what your particular needs are.
In an emergency, everyone’s needs matter.
Talk to anyone who’s lived through a disaster, and they’ll tell you the same thing: There’s no such thing as a universal emergency kit. Different people have specific needs that can only be met with specific items.
Like a translation device for the foreign resident who may not understand instructions for fleeing to higher ground. Or dog-specific emergency goods for the family who owns a dog. Or soft emergency rations for the elderly woman who can’t eat anything hard.
A wheelchair user. A pregnant woman. A company employee. Every person is different-which means every emergency kit must be different, too.
So, we’d like to invite you to assemble your own personalized emergency kit. You’ll learn exactly what you will need to survive a disaster, and what you’ll need to protect the people- and pets-you care about the most.
When everyone’s needs are taken into account, everyone emerges from a disaster safe and sound.
