– Prepare an Emergency Kit

Don’t wait for the wrong time to gather everything you’d ever need in case of an emergency. Use a durable duffle bag and store the following items in it for safety, keeping the bag in an accessible spot:

  • Gallons of water, one gallon per person
  • Nonperishable food
  • Water for sanitation and food preparation
  • A filled first-aid kit
  • Added prescriptions for any necessary medication a person may need
  • Sanitation and personal hygiene products
  • Battery operated radio
  • Flashlight
  • Extra batteries (brand-new)
  • A document kit including important documents, copies, inventory of valuable goods, extra cash and insurance policies
  • A manual can opener
  • Candles, matches and lighter
  • Magazines and books
  • Pet supplies
  • Baby supplies
  • Blankets and pillows
  • Ice packs and coolers

– Create a Plan Ahead of Time

Especially if you have little ones in the family, they’ll have to be taught what the right steps are if a tornado touches down, or if a storm gets worse. They should come inside, seek an adult, and wait underneath a heavy table in a small interior room until the adult asks them to come with.

If there are any older adults, you’ll have to do a complete play-by-play of how they will be moved to the bunker or shelter. You don’t want to come across any accessibility issues because you didn’t think of this problem beforehand.

When Disaster Strikes

Always be alert if a tornado watch is announced and keep your loved ones near you. Taking these steps and preparing will not only keep you safe, it’ll help you avoid emergencies in the future as well!
