Make sure you have a way to stay informed in case the power goes out and cell phone batteries die. A NOAA weather alert radiowith battery back-up is the perfect solution to keep you up to date on the latest storm and emergency alerts.
A general list of items to have on-hand for emergency situations is below. Keep emergency supplies in the place you’ll seek shelter in case of an emergency. Store them in containers that offer protection from water, fire or other damage. Plan for enough emergency supplies to last your family at least a week if you’re without electricity, food or water.
Non-perishable food (don’t forget a manual can opener)
Cell phones and chargers
Important family documents like insurance information
Sleeping bags or warm blankets (keep your climate in mind)
Extra clothing and close-toed shoes
Personal necessities like glasses, oxygen tanks, infant formula and diapers
Garbage or plastic bags for tarping, makeshift rain ponchos, holding belongings, etc.
