Ready Kits should address the needs of three days’ sustenance for all members of the household, as well as your pets. Plan also for any dependent relatives, elderly or special-needs neighbors, or others you may need to help out. The Arizona climate poses special considerations, and seasonal changes can affect what is needed. Download these Ready Kit checklists and make adjustments for your unique situation. Completed Ready Kits should be kept in a waterproof container and can be stored in a garage, shed, neighbor’s house, or other nearby spot. Wherever you choose should be accessible 24/7 to all family members.
A good rule of thumb is to check your Kits every 3 months around the change of seasons, and update them accordingly. Make sure to test batteries and replace these at the same time.
