Wicked Weather Preparedness: Contents for Your Family's Disaster Supply Kit

March 04, 2015

When wicked weather hits, you won’t likely have time to run around the house searching for non-perishable food, jugs for water, and a battery-powered radio. Assemble these items in your home now so that when Mother Nature strikes, you’ll be prepared.

 

  • Water (1 gallon per person/per day for drinking and sanitation)
  • Food (at least a 3-day supply of non-perishable food)
  • Can opener (if kit contains canned food)
  • Battery-powered radio (and NOAA Weather Radio if possible)
  • Flashlight and extra batteries
  • First aid kit
  • Medications (7-day supply)
  • Multi-purpose tool
  • Sanitation and personal hygiene items
  • Copies of personal documents (i.e. birth certificates, insurance policies, proof of address, passports, deed/lease to home etc.)
  • Emergency contact information
  • Cash
  • Local maps
  • Whistle to signal for help
  • Pet supplies (extra food, leash etc.)

 

Time spent preparing today can mean the difference between having the supplies you need in the event of an emergency…and going without. Try to keep your supplies in an easy-to-carry bag that can be quickly grabbed or taken with you in the case of an evacuation.

If the unexpected does happen to you or your family this weather season, your Farm Bureau agent will be there, ready to help you get back on your feet when it matters most.
