Disasters can strike at anytime and it is very important to be prepared at a moment’s notice to have critical items to keep you and your family safe. Below is a list provided by FEMA with the important items you will need in case of an emergency situation. Keep these items in a backpack or bag so you can just pick it up and go! Remember to rotate the perishable items every 6-12 months to ensure freshness.
If a storm is headed your way, remember to:
- Have a full tank of gas in your car
- Have cash on hand as well as a credit card and ID
- Fill prescriptions with needed medication (including your pets!)
- Keep The Homer Fund contact information accessible in the event you encounter expenses you cannot address on your own.
