5 things to have on hand in case of an emergency:
- Enough food and water to last you and your family 3 days. Include pets in this scenario.
- First aid kit
- Cash. ATMs and credit card machines may not be working for a few days.
- Flashlights and candles. Make sure to have matches and batteries as well. A crank flashlight is even better.
- Battery or crank operated radio.
