How to Store and Organize Your
Home Emergency Supplies


This is a fitting article for today’s times with natural disasters happening like hurricanes, floods, fires. The full article is below as always and here is the summary.

There are 4 main elements. First is either buying a kit that will last for 5 years. Or putting together the right food and water and other supplies. You need to review your food (for yourself and pets), water, medical supplies, and other emergency items and regularly check the expiration dates. Keep medical information and insurance documents up-to-date in a protective case to be able to grab and go in case of a natural disaster or other emergency that forces you to leave your home.

Next is staying organized by grouping food items together to know what you have and rotating older food/water to the front and monitor expiration dates. Keep blankets, radios, flashlights in a designated area. And organize your home emergency supplies by family member and put items in labeled containers or bags that can be easily carried in case of an evacuation.

Third is to have a written checklist and inventory and review it periodically especially as your family changes (eg. baby food substituted for grown up food, allergies developed, etc.) with different needs.

And last, decide where to store your home emergency kit so it’s easily and safely accessed at any time. And pick a place that is dry and doesn’t have major temperature fluctuations. It’s suggested you also have a kit for your car and workplace as well. It’s recommended by FEMA to have enough food and water for every family member and pet to last you for 72 hours.
