How do I create disaster supplies kits?

Everyone should have personal disaster supplies kits. Keep them where you spend most of your time, so they can be reached even if your building is badly damaged. The kits will be useful for many emergencies. Keep one kit in your home, another in your car, and a third kit at work. Backpacks or other small bags are best for your disaster supplies kits so you can take them with you if you evacuate.

Following a major earthquake, fire suppression and rescue resources will be completely overwhelmed. The correct use of a fire extinguisher in the early stages of a hostile fire could prevent a total loss. This is true for any fire, not just those caused by earthquakes
