Today, nine out of ten Americans live in places with significant risk of earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, terrorism, or other disasters. Tomorrow, some of us will have to make split-second choices to save our families and ourselves. How will we react? What will it feel like? Will we be heroes or victims?

The FAMILY GO|STAY|KIT provides a cost effective way of storing personal/medical information in case you are asked to leave your residence, or shelter-in-place in the event of a natural, or human-caused disaster. This emergency preparedness resiliency tool is also a necessity for vulnerable populations, seniors, families, or anyone wishing to have their personal/medical information at their fingertips.

Its waterproof pages contain (stored in plastic pouches) copies of important documents needed by medical professionals to diagnose and treat you. It also has personalized I.D. bands to help identify you and your belongings during an evacuation; HELP/OK door hangers, your pet’s information, Red Cross shelter intake forms, a window decal and refrigerator magnet so that first responders know you have a Go Stay Kit in your home, and a list of emergency supplies to have on hand, just in case.

A team of human service providers and emergency preparedness specialists created the Kit. We’re a public/private partnership with 20% of all GO|STAY|KIT earnings going to support those with access and functional needs. Available in English or Spanish, the Family Kit can also be customized with your agency's logo & slogan. First responder window stickers and refrigerator magnets are also included.

The FAMILY GO|STAY|KIT contains—all in one place—vital personal data and copies of important documents needed by emergency responders and shelter intake workers, in case of a natural disaster or medical emergency. It’ll help caregivers and medical professionals assist those who are in need, by allowing them on-the-spot access to vital information that’ll help guide treatment.

Be resilient, and get prepared for a catastrophe (of any kind). What if the electricity goes out? You need a way of preparing for a natural, or human-caused disaster or medical emergency. That's why we created the GO|STAY|KIT.

The FAMILY GO|STAY|KIT™ is made from waterproof paper, and comes with emergency supply checklists (what to have in your "Family Go or Stay Kit"), personalized wristbands to help identify you and your belongings, Red Cross shelter intake forms, your pet's information, and door tags to alert rescue workers that you are OK or need HELP.

The waterproof GO|STAY|KIT™ is the ultimate tool that’ll help vulnerable populations in a medical emergency or natural disaster maintain control over their personal medical information.
