Home Evacuation Kit - Family Emergency Preparedness

A Home Evacuation Kit is an important part of your family's Disaster Preparedness. When creating a DIY Evacuation Kit you will need to include the following:
  • Torch with spare batteries.
  • Portable radio with spare batteries.
  • First Aid Kit.
  • Candles and waterproof matches.
  • A list of emergency contact numbers.
  • Copies of Home Emergency Plans.
  • Emergency toolkit.
  • Rubber gloves.
  • Waterproof bag for valuables.
In the case of a Home Evacuation, the following can be added to, or taken with your Home Evacuation Kit:
  • Any necessary medication.
  • Special requirements for babies, the disabled or elderly.
  • Food and water supplies.
  • Evacuation Box - Your necessary paperwork!
You will need to keep your Home Evacuation Kit up to date and regularly check consumables, such as batteries and emergency dried foodstuffs.
