Having an emergency supply kit is an important step in being prepared. Your kit should be a collection of basic items you may need in the event of an emergency, whether on campus, at home, or out and about. During and after an emergency, you may need to be self-sufficient, and your kit should have the essentials to keep you sustained for at least 72 hours.
Another incredibly important item to have on you is identification. Examples of ID include your Spartan ID card, driver’s license, or passport.
