Start your Emergency Prep with Your New Year’s Resolution

Getting ready for emergencies can feel like a big task, and that’s probably why it’s still on your 
to-do list. Fortunately, it’s not as difficult as you think, and January is the perfect time to start! 
Resolve to be ready in 2023 with these easy tips:

Start your emergency prep with water – your goal is to have at least one gallon of 
emergency water per person per day for two weeks.

Sign up for emergency alerts – get hyperlocal alerts via text, email, or voice message for 
where you live, work, and go to school. 

Learn how to shut off your water – find and get comfortable using your emergency water 
shut-off valve in case you need to turn off your home’s water in an emergency.

Build an emergency kit – find out what else you need besides water and where you should 
store your kit(s).
