Hurricane Preparedness Week - Assemble Disaster Supplies
May 9 - 15, 2021 is Hurricane Preparedness Week
Just having enough supplies to make it through the hurricane isn't usually enough.
There may be a long recovery period and you need to be prepared with enough supplies to make it through that extended time.
Water and electricity may be out for a week or more.
You'll want to have the following on hand for each person in your household for a minimum of three days:
- Non-perishable food
- Extra cash
- Battery-powered radio
- Portable crank or solar-powered USB charger for your cell phone
Since you don't know where you'll be when disaster strikes, prepare kits for your home, work, and vehicles.
