Article 2 (Aug 2019): Ready for anything: What goes in an emergency preparedness kit?

August 28, 2019

September is typically a mild weather month, but unfortunately it's also a time when hurricanes and other extreme weather conditions can pop up. With that in mind, it's a good time to review the items you should keep in your emergency kit.
 
Some of the items the Red Cross says you absolutely need include:

  • A plan for your pet. Evacuate early with your pets. Have food, pet carriers, leashes, and water.
  • Water, one gallon per day per person; three days’ worth for an evacuation.
  • Non-perishable food items, same guidelines as for water. Take a can opener.
  • Flashlight
  • Battery-powered or hand-crank radio, preferably a NOAA weather radio
  • Extra batteries
  • First aid kit that includes prescription medicines
  • Cell phones with chargers
  • Extra cash (remember that ATMs and other machines often won't work) and credit cards
  • Documents, including insurance papers, ID, deed or lease to the home, proof of address and medication list
  • Emergency contact info
  • Emergency blankets
  • Map of the area (cell phone service, including GPS, could be lost)
