Always Have an Emergency Kit On Hand

10/21/2020 (Permalink)

This year has been filled with the unexpected, one thing that we have learned is that it pays to always be prepared. After an emergency, you may need to survive on your own for several days.

Your basic emergency supply kit should include these recommended items:

  • Water (one gallon per person per day for at least three days, for drinking and sanitation)
  • Food (at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food)
  • Battery-powered or hand crank radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert
  • Flashlight
  • First aid kit
  • Extra batteries
  • Whistle (to signal for help)
  • Dust mask (to help filter contaminated air)
  • Plastic sheeting and duct tape (to shelter in place)
  • Moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties (for personal sanitation)
  • Wrench or pliers (to turn off utilities)
  • Manual can opener (for food)
  • Local maps
  • Cell phone with chargers and a backup battery

If a storm does cause damage to your home or business, SERVPRO of Cullman/Blount Counties is here to help.
