Home Emergency Box Recommendations

Safety officials recommend packing three days worth of non perishable foods

Safety officials say every home should have an emergency box fully stocked and ready to use in case of a power outage.

The Georgia Emergency Management Agency recommends the following items for an emergency box:

  • Water supply for three days for each person
  • Non perishable food for three days for each person/animal
  • Flashlight and extra batteries
  • Paper towels and toilet paper
  • Trash bags
  • Battery powered radio and Noaa weather radio
  • Blankets, change of clothes
  • Games for children to play

G.E.M.A. also recommends you keep all items together and easily accessible so you know where to go in case of an emergency.
