TDEM TV - How to Build a Go-Kit

Are you ready for hurricane season? After an emergency, you may need to survive on your own for several days. Being prepared means having your own food, water and other supplies to last for at least 72 hours. A disaster supplies kit is a collection of basic items your household may need in the event of an emergency.

Make sure your emergency kit is stocked with the items covered in this video. Most of the items are inexpensive and easy to find and any one of them could save your life.
