An emergency kit should be built to keep you safe for a minimum of 72 hours with supplies like food, water, a first aid kit, a wind-up or battery powered flashlight, a radio, and more.

Delta Optimist polled 320 Optimist readers and asked the question: Do you feel you are prepared in an emergency situation such as a flood or other natural disaster?

The poll ran from Nov. 15, 2023 to Nov. 29, 2023. Of the 320 votes, we can determine that 125 are from within the community. The full results are as follows:
