Every Home Needs a Disaster Kit!

Posted:

A disaster kit is the most important part of your severe weather plan! When a disaster strikes you will not have time to round up all the items listed below. 

  • Bottled water
  • Non-perishable food
  • Flashlights & extra batteries
  • Extra clothing & blankets
  • An extra set of keys & cash
  • Medications & a first aid kit
  • Personal hygiene items
  • Pet supplies
  • A weather alert radio or portable AM/FM radio
  • Coloring book/or your child's favorite toy to help keep them calm 

Once you have rounded up all the supplies place them in a plastic tub or backpack and leave your disaster kit in your designated shelter area.
