 HURRICANE SUPPLY KIT?     

Do I need one?  Do I have one?   What do I need in my HURRICANE SUPPLY KIT?
  

Both the National Hurricane Center and the American Red Cross have developed specific guidelines for Hurricane supply kits. A hurricane survival kit is merely a specialized version of your disaster supply kit. It should include provisions to carry you through a week or two after a storm or other disaster. Remember, the more water, food, and other items you have the better off you will be in the event of an emergency. You will be able to assist family and friends if needed.

Some companies offer pre-assembled survival kits that include water purification tablets and more.  These can be useful in addition to your own kit.


Below are recommendations from
www.hurricane.com of what to include in your HURRICANE SUPPLY KIT!

HURRICANE TIPS

If you can't get cell reception, move to high ground.

Have a non-cordless plug in phone (no frills phone that only plugs into the phone outlet and does not need its own power supply.) Often phone lines will work, even without power.
