Emergency Supply Kit

Build a kit of necessary supplies for the hurricane season. Make sure that you are prepared before hurricane season begins on June 1 to avoid scrabbling for supplies last minute.

In case of an emergency, plan ahead with family members and discuss logistics before, during and after a hurricane. Keeping each other safe should be a priority during a natural disaster.

Your plan should include the following:

  • List of contact information of all family, friends, and neighbors
  • List of emergency contact information (police, doctors, veterinarians, schools, banks, evacuation sites, city emergency contact or county contact)
  • Store and make copies of important documents in a waterproof container or bag (Social security card, bank account numbers, insurance card, copies of birth or/and marriage certificate, medical records, set of house, car, and office keys)
  • Learn to turn off the water, gas, and electricity safely
