Hurricane Ian – Be Prepared

Share now

Hurricane Ian has made landfall. Millions are without power in Florida. It is now a tropical storm which is moving on to other states. What we are to expect? While FEMA has food and water supplies to help assist those after the hurricane, it’s important to have supplies ready in case you can’t leave your home. Some basic supplies include:

  • Several days’ supply of food and water for your family, pets and service animals
  • If your kit includes canned food, be sure to also have a manual can opener
  • Fill empty containers—even bathtubs—with potable water.
  • Flashlight and backup batteries
  • First aid kit
  • Whistle (to signal for help)
  • Local maps
  • Alternate methods for charging a cell phone or radio
  • A safe place to go
