Gather supplies and build an emergency kit
Unexpected situations happen everyday. Having supplies is one thing you can do to help manage whatever may come your way.

You should be prepared to take care of yourself and those close to you for a minimum of 72 hours. For information and checklists on what to include in your emergency kit, visit alberta.ca/GetSupplies
