The pantry list provides you with important information & advice on how to stock your pantry to ensure your household has an adequate supply of food, water and essential items to cope with a prolonged emergency situation.
Preparing for emergencies ensures that you and your family can manage if affected by an emergency such as:
- Utility failure (eg. electricity, gas, water)
- Flood & storms
- Influenza pandemic
While many emergencies will only extend over a few days, some incidents will disrupt the supply of critical foods and groceries. Planning for a 14-day stay at home (possibly without water and electricity) by building and rotating items in your pantry, ensures you are prepared for a wide range of circumstances.
Use the pantry list as a guide to help you meet the needs of your household and prepare for an emergency – it is the smart thing to do!
