Hurricane Preparedness: Assemble Disaster Supplies

May 17th, 2018 | 1 min read

Beat the rush: Get your supplies now! Waiting until a hurricane has got our area in its sights is a bad time to be thinking about hurricane supplies.

People panic and store shelves become empty within a few hours of the news stations proclaiming we are under a tropical storm/hurricane warning or watch. Gas stations get pumped dry and lumber for boarding up homes becomes scarce. Gather all these things now so you can be ready when a storm hits!


What to include in your supplies preparation:


  • Water – 1 gallon per day/per person
  • Food – three-day supply of non-perishable food
  • Can opener (if your kit contains canned food)
  • Weather radio – hand crank or battery-powered
  • Flashlight and batteries
  • First-aid kit
  • Whistle
  • Dust mask, plastic sheeting, duct tape
  • Moist towelettes, baggies with ties
  • Wrench or pliers
  • Local maps

Additional Items to Consider:

  • Prescription medications
  • Eyeglasses
  • Infant formula
  • Diapers
  • Feminine supplies and personal hygiene items
  • Sleeping bag/blanket
  • Change of clothing
  • Important family documents in a waterproof container
  • Cash, traveler’s checks, and change
  • Matches in waterproof container
  • Fire extinguisher
  • Bleach
  • Books, puzzles, or other activities for children
  • Extra food and water for pets
