GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) The Prepare Colorado movement was launched with the focus to get every sector in the state to prepare for emergency situations.

A disaster kit is important for every person in a family to have. According to Eric Myer, Executive Director of the local Red Cross, a basic kit can last one person 72 hours and includes things like food, a flashlight, a first aid kit and a blanket.

However, Pamela Lebaron, who owns Harvest Reserve Foods, suggests storing enough food that would last your family one year as you never know when disaster could strike.

Lebaron also said water is the most important thing to have if you are stuck in a situation without help, which is what local father, David Morrison, said he is stocking up on for his family.
