Summer storms are just around the corner and the best way to prepare is to develop a communication plan and build an emergency supply kit. Knowing how to react and having valuable items at hand is extremely important in case of emergency.

Here are some recommended items for a basic emergency supply kit:

  • Water (one gallon per person per day)
  • Food (non-perishable 3-day supply)
  • Manual can opener
  • Battery operated radio, preferably a NOAA Weather Radio
  • Flashlight with extra batteries
  • First aid kit
  • Whistle to signal for help
  • Clothing
  • Dust masks or bandanas
  • Plastic sheeting, garbage bags, and duct tape
  • Wrench or pliers to turn off utilities
  • Hygiene items
  • Important documents: copies of insurance policies, identification and bank info
  • Fire extinguisher
  • Matches in waterproof container
  • Cash

This is not a complete list, but it will give you a solid foundation for a basic emergency supply kit. You'll be glad you put together all these items!
