For emergencies due to natural or even man-made disasters, it is recommended that your home (i.e. house, apartment, condo) has an emergency kit. And if you have a car, an emergency kit in the trunk or backseat is also recommended. Below are online resources for how to create your own kit or where to purchase pre-made ones. There is also information about how to be prepared in general.
Note: QuakeKare is just one example of a company that commercially sells emergency kits. Santa Clara University does not endorse this company. You are free to purchase kits from any company or organization.
