Emergency Kits Checklist

Emergency Kits Checklist

Here at Sava, we believe that you can never be too prepared. Whether you’re preparing for the worst-case scenario by purchasing insurance, preparing your car for winter weather, or preparing for an oncoming storm, we know that preparation now saves you headaches later. A disaster supply kit is a collection of basic items your household or business may need in the event of an emergency. We’ve compiled a list of all the items you’ll want to have in your kit!
