Prepare BEFORE an emergency!

The following steps can help you be ready in case of an emergency:

  • Make a disaster supplies kit.
    • One gallon of water per person (and pet!) per day for at least three days.
    • Non-perishable food, at least a three-day supply; manual can opener for food.
    • Battery-powered or hand crank radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert, and extra batteries.
    • Flashlight with extra batteries.
    • First aid kit.
    • Whistle to signal for help.
    • Dust mask to filter contaminated air, and plastic sheeting and duct tape.
    • Moist towelettes, garbage bags, and plastic ties for personal sanitation.
    • Wrench or pliers to turn off utilities.
    • Local maps (not on your phone!).
    • Cell phone with charger, inverter, or solar charger.

    • How will we get to safe locations for relevant emergencies
    • How will we get in touch if cell phone, internet, or landlines don’t work?
    • How will I let loved ones know I’m safe?
