Regardless of where you work, you probably spend a fair amount of time there. An emergency or a disaster is just as likely to happen when we're on the job as it is when we are at home, so it's important to Live Ready by keeping an emergency kit on hand in your desk, in your work locker, or at your job site. A well-stocked kit will help you shelter in place if you are stranded at work, and it will be ready to go if you need to evacuate an unsafe building. If the power goes out and basic services—such as electricity, gas, water, and phone—are unavailable, you'll have essential supplies to help you stay safe and be self-sufficient.
Live Ready Tip: Keep a pair of walking shoes with your emergency kit, especially if your usual work shoes aren't comfortable for walking long distances.
