A Basic Disaster Supply Can

A Disaster Response Supply Can
 
The Disaster Response Supply Can is meant to be used only in case of emergency, a reliable source of supplies for immediate response.  It does not take the place of a larger centralized stock of disaster supplies.  Cans such as this can be placed in all library public service departments and are inventoried annually.  Estimated total cost of materials is $125.
 
The supplies, including the container, are labelled in the hope that unused emergency supplies will be returned to the disaster can after the emergency.  Note:  do not store batteries in the flashlight.  Be sure to renew them every year and after emergency use.
