Emergency Disaster Supplies

Emergency Disaster Supplies

Every student MUST have a personal emergency kit (including a Disaster Preparedness Form) as part of the Redondo Beach Unified School District’s disaster preparedness plan.  (see RBUSD Parent/Student Handbook)

These kits will be stored in our shed located on the playground near the garden and will be returned at the end of each school year. If reusing your kits year to year, please be sure that none of the items in your kit are out of date and that the water is fresh.

If your child attends the CDC program, you must submit a second kit to CDC. 

There are three ways you can insure an emergency kit for your child. 
(1) Purchase one from MORE PREPARED (see form and weblink below)
(2)  Make one on your own (see list below).

(3)  Purchase from another retail supplier.

Items that are normally placed in a 1-gallon Ziploc bag:

  • Disaster Preparedness Form (insert in bag facing outwards)
  • (1) Old sweatshirt or sweater
  • (1) small packet of Kleenex
  • (1) small packet of wet wipes
  • (1) 6-ounce can/pouch of juice/water (no glass or juice boxes)
  • (3) small snack packages such as commercially vacuum-packed granola bars,  beef jerky, fruit rolls etc.
  • Family photo & letter to remind your child to STAY CALM

*No loose snacks or crackers that could be crushed, could spoil or could attract ants.*

Please write your child’s name and classroom on the front of the bag.  

A great alternative for parents who are looking to pre-purchase emergency kits for either school or home is through our partner – MORE PREPARED.

Please see the attached flyer for the items offered by MORE PREPARED

Kits are for children at school or for families at home, and both contain supplies needed for 3 days in a disaster. Kits will last for 5 years, so you don't need to replace them every year.

More Prepared is also offering a specially priced Earthquake home survival kit and Emergency backpack kit to Jefferson families. This convenient red pail contains food, water & supplies your family needs for 3 day survival.  There’s free delivery of all kits to your child’s classroom in September.  It’s easy to order online!
