emergency Supplies Prepare your kit well in advance!

The last thing you want when a hurricane hits is to be unprepared. Taking the extra steps to ensure you have everything you need to keep you and your family safe is essential. While you hope you’ll never have to use your kit, having it fully stocked will do wonders for your peace of mind.

For a basic Hurricane Preparedness Kit, the following items are key:
  • One gallon of water per person per day, for at least three days
  • At least a three-day supply of non-perishable food
  • Manual can opener for food
  • First aid kit
  • Flashlight and extra batteries
  • Medications, hard copies of your prescriptions, and insurance card
  • Moist towelettes, garbage bags, and plastic ties for personal care
  • Whistle
  • Multi-tool, knife, or wrench to turn off the gas line to your home, if necessary

It’s also important to remember that everyone has different survival needs, so pack accordingly. For instance, if you’re prone to diarrhea, pack some rehydration salts and anti-diarrheals, or if you are menstruate, remember to pack pads or tampons.
