American Red Cross : 20 Week Preparedness Plan

This brochure is intended to provide you with an easy to use “20-Weeks to Preparedness” checklist to prepare for the next disaster. Your ability to be prepared could be the difference between surviving an earthquake, fire, flood or tsunami. At the end of the 20 weeks, you will have a comprehensive supply kit that will last for 4-5 days (based on using one gallon of water per day and recommended rationed meals). Your total investment will depend on how prepared you want to be and how many people you will be caring for during a disaster. The recommendation is to have all of these supplies stored together where they can be easily accessible.
