Be Prepared!

Categories:

Now’s as good as any time to check your emergency preparedness, so take a look at your survival kit and see what your missing. If you don’t have one, American Red Cross suggests the following supplies kept in an easy to carry kit (but we may have made a few edits in red for you as well):

  • Water—one gallon per person, per day (3-day supply for evacuation, 2-week supply for home)
  • Food—non-perishable, easy-to-prepare items (3-day supply for evacuation, 2-week supply for home)
  • Flashlight (A LED LENSER, of course)
  • Battery-powered or hand-crank radio (NOAA Weather Radio, if possible)
  • Extra batteries
  • First aid kit
  • Medications (7-day supply) and medical items
  • Multi-purpose tool (Leatherman makes great Multi-Tools!)
  • Sanitation and personal hygiene items
  • Copies of personal documents (medication list and pertinent medical information, proof of address, deed/lease to home, passports, birth certificates, insurance policies)
  • Cell phone with chargers
  • Family and emergency contact information
  • Extra cash
  • Emergency blanket
  • Map(s) of the area
