A SMRTE Jug is a personal, complete emergency kit that you put together yourself.

It contains essential items an adult will need for at least three days after a disaster and is intended to be prepared before its needed; each person in your home should have their own. It can be used if you are trapped at home or taken with you when you flee to a shelter where you may go if local authorities call for an evacuation.

The container for the SMRTE jug is made out of a plastic gallon milk jug with part of the side cut out. A list of items to pack into your SMRTE jug and instructions on putting it together can be found in the PDF available for download on the right side of this page.
