Your emergency preparedness kit
The P.E.I. government has published a guide to preparing for emergencies, including specialized information for taking care of pets, for people who live alone, and those with special health needs.
Your emergency kit should include supplies for three days for everyone in your house. The basic supplies would include:
At least six litres of water per person. Replace every year.
Food that won't spoil. Canned food, energy bars, dried foods.
A manual can opener.
Crank or battery-powered lights.
Crank or batter-operated radio.
First aid kit.
Your vehicle should also have an emergency kit, with the following:
Candle in a deep can and matches.
Extra clothing and shoes.
First aid kit with seatbelt cutter.
Crank or battery-operated light.
Food that won't spoil.
List of contact numbers.
Crank or battery operated radio.
Small shovel, scraper and snowbrush.

Your emergency kits should include any special material, such as prescriptions or infant formula, that your family or pets might need.
