Resources for Building a Emergency Supplies Kit:

- bReadySD.com helps families analyze the amounts and types of supplies needed for a kit, as well as budget for purchasing a kit over a period of time.
- American Red Cross Emergency Preparedness Kits
- American Red Cross provides a list of supplies needed to sustain an adult for 3 days. This information would be helpful to a variety of audiences.

- This kit is great for employees that, in the case of an emergency, would be forced to stay in the office environment for several hours extra or even overnight.
- Ready America: Get a Kit
