Home Supply Kit

Home Supply Kit

You should have some basic supplies at home during the June – November hurricane season. We recommend you keep them in a separate hurricane kit, so they are easy to find when you need them. The kit should include such items as:

  • Water-at least one gallon per person per day for three days
  • Nonperishable food- sufficient for the entire family for one week
  • First aid kit
  • Medical needs (extra prescription medicines, extra oxygen cylinders, spare batteries for ventilators, wheelchairs, etc.)
  • Battery-operated radio
  • Blankets and pillows
  • Manual can opener
  • Portable cooler
  • Plain bleach
  • Mosquito repellant
  • Hard-wired phone; not cordless/electric phone
  • Extra cash
  • Flashlight with extra batteries and bulbs
  • Garbage bags (blue Plantation bags and regular lawn bags) and plastic ties
  • Hygiene products
  • Identification
  • Moist towelettes and several towels
  • Plastic sheeting and duct tape
  • Special supplies for infants including diapers and formula
  • Special supplies for pets including pet food and proof of vaccinations
