Are You Prepared For An Emergency Like A Hurricane? Making An Emergency Kit To Get You Through.
Get Prepared. Here Are Some Useful And Easy Suggestions On Preparations From People Who Have Survived Hurricanes.
Hurricane Season is upon us and it's time to get your supplies in order. While the frequency of Hurricanes hasn't increased, the intensity of the storms has and they are causing much more in property damage than in the past.
Here is a brief list of suggested items and just the basic necessities that are recommended. While the list isn't comprehensive, it should help in any emergency weather situation. Please note that this list is a work in progress and may include items that are not necessary for every situation. Please note that the list is in no particular order:
Generators can be a wonderful addition to your disaster plan but you must use them with care. NEVER use a generator inside of a house or building. Keep all generators away from any doorway or window where fumes can come in and harm others. Generators emit carbon monoxide which is a silent killer. Generators can be very difficult to use, especially if you have a generator with a pull cord. Have a plan in place on where to use one safely, and fill the gas cans prior to the storm.
It's critical to have a plan before the emergency. Have a designated meeting place after the storm just in case you are separated. Know where to meet and get there when it is safe.
