A pandemic influenza outbreak is expected to affect the flow of the services and supplies that we routinely count on. Many will become seriously ill. Normal daily routines will be altered as businesses begin to close or operate with limited staffing.
Individuals and families may be expected to take care of themselves and their families for quite a while. Because you may not have access to normal services and supplies, it is a good idea to put together an emergency preparedness kit.
Items to put in your kit include:
Homemade Oral Rehydration Solution
Mix together 1 teaspoon salt, 8 teaspoons sugar, and 1 liter of water.
Sanitizing Solution for Surfaces
Mix 1 tablespoon of bleach with 1 gallon of warm water.
