Hurricane Preparation ~ Hurricane Survival

If you are in an area that may require evacuation you will want to have everything in containers that can be quickly loaded  into your vehicle.  Plastic tubs from Target are good for this.

Water ~ A minimum of at least 1 gallon of water per person per day.  You should have 5 to 7 days of water supply for each person and pets.  Additional water should be stored for washing.

Food ~ You should have 5 to 7 days of food for each person and pets.  Food should  be canned or prepackaged.  Canned juices are a good thing to stock up on.  Snacks are a good idea. 

Medicine ~ You should keep stocked up on any medicines that are taken on a regular basis.  Over the counter sleep aids may help those who have temporary trouble getting to sleep.

Special Items for Infants and Elderly ~ Diapers, formula, toys, games, cards, hearing aid batteries, etc.

Cooking ~ A barbeque grill and charcoal are a good idea.  In a pinch you can use a rack from the oven to cook over a fire.

Utensils ~ Non-electric can opener.  Paper plates and plastic utensils.  Napkins and paper towels.

Personal Hygiene Items such as moisture wipes and toiletries.

Clothing and Rain Gear ~ Sturdy shoes, a good rain coat and warm clothing.

Sleeping ~ Blankets, pillows, air mattresses, tents.

First-aid Kit ~ Invest in a good first-aid kit now if you don't have one.  It is something that should be in every home.

Flashlights ~ Flashlights and fresh batteries.  if available in your area you should have the type of flashlight you shake to generate the electricity.  Small ones can cost as little as $3.00 in some dollar stores.  They are also advertised on TV.

Radio ~ Battery operated with fresh batteries or if you can find it a wind-up radio where you generate the power by turning a crank.

Important Documents ~ These should be in a waterproof container that is lockable.  Insurance, Bank Account numbers, medical records, immunization records etc.

Cash ~ Enough cash for a week.  Banks and ATM's may not be open due to electrical outages.

Tool Box ~ This should contain basic tools such as a hammer, nails, hunting knife roll of thick wire, pliers, wire cutters, bolt cutters, pry bar, tin snips, sledge hammer, etc.

Fuel ~ Keep vehicle tanks full as a hurricane approaches.  Store extra fuel in an approved container in a safe place.

Car ~ Safety equipment, oil, transmission fluid, replace wipers if needed, check spare tire.

Pets ~ Food and water for pets.  Carrier cages, leash, medicine and immunization records.

Generator ~ Expensive but a good idea.  Must be operated in an open area with good ventilation.

Prophylactics and birth control pills ~ If you don't want more children these are a good idea.  Nine months after Charley, Jeanne and Frances hit Florida there was a baby boom with some hospitals reporting double digit gains in the birth rate.  

    <<<<>>>>

Trim trees in the yard.  Don't park vehicles near trees if possible. 

Take in all things that could become projectiles.

Watch for downed power lines after the hurricane passes.  Don't walk through large concentrations of water since downed power lines hidden by debris could be feeding current into the water.
