What a Disaster Supplies Kit Is

Assembling the supplies you might need following a disaster is an important part of your Family Disaster Plan. Following a disaster, having extra supplies at home or supplies to take with you in the event of an evacuation can help your family endure evacuation or home confinement.

Learn more about Disaster Supplies Kits by contacting the Brownsville Office of Emergency Management, your local emergency management agency or your local American Red Cross chapter. You can also download a Family Disaster Supplies Calendar, which will divide the purchases needed for a good supplies kit into weekly purchases over a 6-month period.
