Home Emergency Kit

EmergKitA Home Emergency Kit contains items that will assist you to respond better in any emergency.

Your Home Emergency Kit should contain:

  • Portable radio with spare batteries
  • Torch with spare batteries (consider a wind up/rechargable type)
  • First aid kit
  • Important documents
  • List of emergency contact numbers
  • Copy of  Home Emergency Action Plan
  • A good supply of required medications
  • Special requirements for babies, people with disabilities, elderly or infirm
  • Sturdy footwear
  • Heavy duty gardening gloves
  • Tinned/package food
  • Plenty of bottled water

It is a good idea to keep your emergency kit in a waterproof storage container with a list of contents attached. Remember to check use by dates periodically.

The use of candles is not recommended due to fire risk.
