Disaster Kits is simply a collection of things (usually common household items) you should consider having at the ready in the event of a disaster. You may want to have a different kit built for the most common threats you should be prepared for in Okinawa. Select Disaster Kits (link coming soon) for some basic information on how to put together a disaster kit, and use information from the specific threats listed above to build a "threat-specific" kit.
To help prepare for the possibility of an evacuation, select Noncombatant Evacuation Operations.
