Are You Prepared for a Minimum of 3 Days After a Major Disaster?


March 19, 2012 -- Disaster can strike quickly and without warning. It can force you to evacuate your neighborhood or confine you to your home. What would you do if you did not have water, gas electricity or telephones after a major emergency?  You may need to survive on your own after an emergency. This means having food, water, and other supplies to last for at least three days. 

Police and Fire will respond to the scene of an emergency or disaster, but they cannot reach everyone right away. Families can and do cope with disasters by preparing in advance. You too can be prepared by maintaining a 72-hour emergency supply kit for your home.

Click here to learn what to include in your family's 72-Hour Emergency Supply Kit.  

For additional information on Disaster Preparedness, contact Portland Fire & Rescue’s Public Education Office at (503) 823-3700.
