Emergency Supply Kit
When preparing for emergency situations, it's best to think first about the basics of survival: fresh water, food, clean air, and warmth. Talk to your co-workers about what emergency supplies the company can feasibly provide, if any, and which ones individuals should consider keeping on hand.
RECOMMENDED EMERGENCY SUPPLY KIT ITEMS INCLUDE:
- battery-operated AM/FM radio and extra batteries
- water (one gallon per person per day)
- non-perishable, ready-to-eat canned foods, and a manual can opener
- paper cups & plates and plastic utensils
- first aid kit
- whistle (to signal for help)
- dust or filter masks
- basic tools (wrench, pliers, screwdrivers, hammer)
- plastic sheeting and duct tape
- garbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation
- extra set of car, building and business keys
personal hygiene items: soap, feminine products, toothbrush, toothpaste, moist towelettes, etc.
Keep copies of important records such as site maps, building plans, insurance policies, employee contact and identification information, bank account records, supplier and shipping contact lists, computer backups, emergency or law enforcement contact information, and other priority documents in a waterproof, fireproof portable container. Store a second set of records at an off-site location.
Business Go Bag
Every business should assemble a Business Go Bag – a collection of items you and your employees may need in the event of an evacuation. Encourage employees to have their own portable kits customized to meet personal needs.
RECOMMENDED BUSINESS GO BAG ITEMS INCLUDE:
battery-operated AM/FM radio and extra batteries
bottled water and nonperishable food such as energy or granola bars
first aid kit
lightweight raingear and mylar blankets
contact information for emergency personnel
