Oktibbeha County Emergency Management encourages all citizens to do three key things to help save lives in the event of an emergency or disaster:
Get an emergency supply kit
Make a family emergency plan
Be informed about the different types of emergencies that could occur and their appropriate responses
All Americans should have some basic supplies on hand in order to survive for at least 72 hours if an emergency occurs. Following is a listing of some basic items that every emergency supply kit should include. However, it is important that individuals review this list and consider where they live and the unique needs of their families in order to create an emergency supply kit that will meet these needs. Individuals should also consider having at least two emergency supply kits, one full kit at home, and smaller portable kits in their workplace, vehicle, or other places they spend time.
