Q. Why do I need a preparedness kit?
A. In the event of any disaster there will be a period of time where you may be stranded. If you are in your car and cannot go anywhere, its a good idea to have food and water available. If you are at home, you may be able to use items in your pantry. However, if the water is not safe to drink you will have the comfort of knowing that you are prepared.
