Creating Your Emergency Preparedness Kit

Use our easy-to-read calendar to make your family’s emergency preparedness kit. This calendar guides you through the process of creating a three- to seven-day emergency supply kit for a family of four. The budget-friendly plan gives you a checklist of basic items that every emergency supply kit should include.

Our Emergency Preparedness staff is happy to work with your daycare, church or other organization to help you prepare for disasters. Contact us at 865-215-5093 or click here to read our preparedness guides for childcare facilities, faith-based organizations and more.

After 9/11, health departments across the U.S. took on the additional role of emergency planning to protect public health in the event of a large-scale medical disaster. KCHD’s Emergency Preparedness department enhances community preparedness by encouraging and supporting readiness planning efforts from individual households to large corporations.
