Different types of disasters require different responses from individuals and emergency response personnel. Individuals and families are encouraged to have and practice a disaster plan. Go to http://floridadisaster.org/family/ to have a plan prepared for you, or you can create your own plan. A good disaster preparedness plan should include the following:
If you are evacuated, DO NOT PANIC! Immediately implement your family disaster plan. Be Prepared! Have a disaster kit ready. Know what to take with you before you go to a shelter. Knowing what to do when a disaster strikes will help you better control the situation and recover faster.
Home Emergency Disaster Kit
The best way to prepare is by assembling a disaster supplies kit. Once disaster hits, you won't have time to gather or search for supplies. If you've gathered supplies in advance, your family can endure an evacuation or home confinement. Your disaster supply kit should include a 3-7 day supply of water, non-perishable food, medication, and other necessity items per person. The following is a recommended list of items to include in your kit. For additional information on preparing an Emergency Disaster Kit see page 7 of the Disaster Preparedness Guide.
Note: Children, nursing mothers, and those with illnesses will require more water. Change water every 6 months to keep it fresh.
- Canned meats, fruits, and vegetables
- Canned juices
- Staples (salt, pepper, spices)
- High energy foods (power bars, granola bars)
- Comfort/stress food (cookies, crackers, chocolate)
- Peanut butter
Note: Replace your stored food as often as required by each manufacturer.
TIP: Most large retailers and one-hour photo processing retailers can electronically scan your important documents and save them to a compact disc.
- Propane or charcoal for grills
- Keep vehicles full of fuel
- Extra fuel for generators and other needs stored in appropriate safety containers
Store your kit in a convenient place known to all family members. Keep a smaller version of the disaster supplies kit in the trunk of your car. Re-think your kit and family needs at least once a year. Replace batteries, update clothes, etc.
