Do you have an emergency kit in the event of a disaster?

Warning! Severe storms could be coming.

While uneasy to think about, everyone should be prepared. This list below is for those who do not have a storm shelter where they can have these items already stored. We recommend a duffle bag with the following items that is ready to grab.

  • Water – we realize you cannot keep one gallon per person per day readily available, so we recommend water purifying straws available at your local outdoor store
  • Food – a three-day supply is recommended, however, several chocolate bars should suffice
  • Battery-powered radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with extra batteries for both
  • Flashlight with extra batteries
  • First Aid kit
  • Whistle
  • Moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation
  • Feminine products
  • Dust mask or cotton T-shirt for air filtration
  • Long pants, shirt, closed toe shoes and gloves to protect from debris

Things to grab at the last minute:

  • Medicines
  • Important documents
  • Wallet/purse
  • Cell phone

If you have small children:

  • Formula & bottle
  • Diapers & wipes
  • Small toy
  • Headphones for music helps distract little ones from the loudness of hail and tornadoes

If you have pets:

  • Food & dish
  • Water & dish
  • Leash
  • Have your pet carrier easily accessible

If you do have a storm shelter, we recommend cleaning and stocking it each spring. No one wants to run into a shelter full of spiders!

  • In place of the water purifying straws, we recommend having a couple cases of bottled water
  • Food – a three-day supply
  • Can opener if you have any canned food
  • In place of the garbage bags and plastic ties, we recommend a chemical toilet
