Disaster Preparation- Now is the time!

Having the proper provisions can help make a difficult scenario safer. When creating an emergency survival kit, consider supplies to last you and your family for a minimum of three to seven days.

In case of emergencies that may require that you leave your home quickly, such as a fire, prepare a “to-go” bag well in advance, and keep it in an easily accessible location so you can take essential items with you if you must evacuate with little notice.

Take the time to prepare for the unpredictable:

  • Enough water for a gallon of water per person, per day. Consider LifeStraws and water treatment kits as well.
  • Map out an evacuation route
  • Flashlights with extra batteries
  • First-aid kit and prescriptions
  • Sleeping bags or blankets
  • Camping stove
  • Chargers and car chargers
  • Duct tape
  • Food
    • Peanut Butter
    • Dry and canned soups
    • Instant rice and oatmeal
    • Beans
    • Canned and/or freeze dried fruits and vegetables. Also kid’s veggie/fruit pouches don’t need to be refrigerated.
    • Breakfast bars
    • Powdered eggs and milk
    • Freeze dried meals- some have a 25-year shelf life!

In the event of severe damage to your home or business, having a current inventory of possessions – including make and model numbers- can help get your insurance claims settled faster, verify losses, and help you purchase the correct amount of insurance.
