Being Hurricane Prepared

Share via email

I never really worried about bad weather until I had the kids…  Thought I would share some info I have found helpful:

  • Have cash on hand in case power is out
  • Make sure your car is full of gas
  • Have enough food & water (1 gal/day/person) for 5 days on hand (remember food for the critters too)
  • Multiple Flash Lights – including ones for the kiddies.  They will inevitably want their own.  And extra batteries so you don’t need to worry about conserving power.
  • Fill your tub (or buckets) with water so you can flush your toilet in case there is a problem with the water distribution system
  • Have an emergency plan (ie: where you all will meet in case of disaster)
  • A Go-Kit for the really organized (or those in evacuation zones)
    - First Aid Kit
    - Prescription items
    - Battery Powered Radio
    - Change of Clothes
    - Important Documents in waterproof containers

Lastly, this was posted on Fox 5… I was pleased to see I was not part of the evacuation zone….  Really, it is the little things that make you happy….

Any other tips to add????
