Emergencies can disrupt your life in ways you don’t expect. Being prepared includes having your own food, water, medication and other essential supplies to be able to look after yourself and your family for at least 72 hours.

An emergency kit is a collection of items your household may need for survival during the emergency and items to help you recover after an emergency. An emergency kit must be prepared to suit your family’s individual needs.

This game will help you to begin thinking about what items you should pack in an emergency kit. Make sure you note down any other items you may need for your household’s special needs such as items required for those with a medical condition or disability, children and pets.
