Disaster Preparedness

We would prefer not to think about natural disasters. But they occur every day around the world. The chance of one happening close to home are higher than you think. With that in mind, the best time to prepare for an event is before it happens.

According to FEMA, these are the basic items you should have in your home emergency supply kit:

  • 1 gallon of drinkable water per person per day, for three days
  • 3-day supply of non-perishable food per person
  • Battery-powered or hand crank radio with NOAA Weather Alert capability
  • Flashlight
  • First aid kit
  • Whistle to signal for help
  • Dust mask, plastic sheeting, duct tape
  • Moist towelettes, garbage bags, plastic ties for personal sanitation
  • Wrench or pliers to turn off utilities
  • Manual can opener
  • Local maps
  • Cell phone with chargers, inverter or solar charger
  • Extra batteries for anything requiring power

It would help if you also considered the unique needs of your family and location to create a customized supply kit that meets any special requirements.
