Should there be a large scale emergency situation, such as a pandemic, money may not be easily accessible for an extended period of time. You may need money (cash) to make store purchases (if one is open around you) or to barter for items. It would be wise to keep cash on hand in a safe and secure place at home. Keep your emergency cash in small bills. If you can't get change, you would probably prefer to not get change for a ONE or a FIVE vs a Twenty dollar bill!

:arrow: Within two to three days
    * Food shortages will escalate, especially in the face of hoarding and consumer panic.
    * Supplies of essentials,such as bottled water, powdered milk, and canned meat,at major
    retailers will disappear.
    * ATMs will run out of cash and banks will be unable to process transactions. * Service stations will completely run out of fuel for autos and trucks.
    * Garbage will start piling up in urban and suburban areas.
    * Container ships will sit idle in ports and rail transport will be disrupted, eventually coming to a
    standstill.
