Disaster can strike without warning, forcing you to go for days without basic necessities or to evacuate your home. Relief workers will be on the scene following a disaster, but may not be able to reach you immediately.

You need to be prepared. Knowing the steps to take during a disaster—whether flooding, severe weather, earthquakes or any other crisis—can greatly reduce the danger and distress your family may face. This guide will help you and your family plan for a variety of emergency situations, persevere during them and recover afterward.

Last year, APHA suggested that Americans check their preparedness supplies when they change their clocks for daylight saving time.  It is a good practice to do this on March 11, 2018, when we once again set our clocks for Daylight Savings Time.  

APHA's Get Ready: Set Your Clocks, Check Your Stocks campaign, which provides free preparedness materials, serves as a reminder that emergency supplies should be checked twice a year, making sure emergency items are not missing or expired.  

APHA members and others are asked to help spread the word about preparedness by sharing free Get Ready materials.  For more information, visit bit.ly/ClocksStocks.

CHECK PREPAREDNESS SUPPLIES

Three Minutes

You can survive about three minutes in unsafe air.

  • Ensure that the atmosphere in your home is safe by having a working carbon monoxide detector.

Three Hours

‚ÄčYou can survive about three hours at a dangerous temperature. 

  • Protect your family with winter clothes, blankets, and an alternate heat source when cold emergencies arise.

  • Ensure that you have a way to stay cool and hydrated in a heat-related emergency.

Three Days

You can survive about three days without water.

  • Store at least a two-week supply of clean water--two gallons per day per person.  This would be 28 gallons per person for 2 weeks.

Three Weeks

You can survive about three weeks without food.

  • Purchase a food thermometer.  Hot foods should stay hotter than 140 degrees F and cold foods should be kept below 40 degrees F.
