Preparing for Household Emergencies Handout

Washington Military Department, Emergency Management Division

After a disaster, you and your family should be prepared to be on your own for at least three days. In some emergencies, such as an influenza pandemic, you may need to prepare for a week or more.  Emergency response teams will be very busy and may not be able to provide immediate care to all who need it.

This handout gives information on how to prepare your household for these such emergencies.
