Your Home Emergency Kit should contain:

  • Portable radio with spare batteries
  • Torch with spare batteries
  • First aid kit (with supplies necessary for your household)
  • Candles and waterproof matches
  • Important papers including emergency contact numbers
  • Waterproof bag for valuables

If you are required to leave your property, place in your Home Emergency Kit:

  • A good supply of required medications
  • Any special requirements for babies, the disabled, infirm and/or elderly
  • Strong shoes
  • Fresh food and drinks

Keep your Home Emergency Kit in a waterproof storage container.

On a regular basis, check (remember to check use-by dates on batteries and gloves) and re-stock items if you need to.

Also, keep a list of emergency numbers on your fridge.
