Emergencies and disasters can strike at any time and that’s why officials say you should stop putting off making up an Emergency Kit for you and your family.
The kit should have everything your family needs to survive entirely on their own for at least three days.
Officials suggest getting a little extra food at the store each time you go and slowly building up a stockpile.
They also recommend First Aid training so you can get involved should the worst happen.
The Mesa County Health Department has a variety of resources on their Web site, including a list of exactly what should be in your kit, how to set up an emergency plan and more information on threats to our community (such as H1N1) on their Web site. Click the link below.
