Tornadoes, floods and fires could affect Nebraskans with little or no notice. Be prepared to take care of yourselves and those you care about until help can arrive. The best time to plan and assemble an emergency preparedness kit is right now. Whether at home or on the go, have emergency plans in place wherever your family spends their time: work, daycare, school, houses of worship, sports events, commuting or traveling. Be disaster ready, wherever you may be.
NEMA has a Family Disaster Preparedness Kit at https://nema.nebraska.gov/files/doc/preparedness-kit.pdf that you can use to assemble your own supplies in case a disaster strikes. Other preparedness information can be found on the NEMA website at www.nema.nebraska.gov. Store your kit and support materials where you can find them easily and move them quickly. The best-supplied kit may not do any good if you can’t take it with you. Consider using a buddy system with nearby families, to help and support one another in the case of extreme emergencies.
