Preparedness for Children

If you have an infant in your home, it's important that disaster supplies go beyond the obvious.

Do a mental inventory and then pack up the things your baby can't do without:

  • Diapers and baby wipes
  • Rash ointments and other medications
  • Bottles and formula
  • Powdered milk
  • Special toys and blankets
