Creating a Disaster Supplies Kit

Creating a Disaster Supplies Kit


Hi, I’m meteorologist Nicole Carlisle
with the National Weather Service Tampa Bay Area, Florida office. Especially now that it’s hurricane
season it is very important for you and your family to have a disaster plan in
place and that includes having a basic
disaster supplies kit. So today, I’m here to show you a few things that you can put in
a disaster kit for your home. Okay, we’ll start with water and food. You want to make sure you have at least
one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days, as well as a
three-day supply of non-perishable food for each person. In addition, be sure to grab a can opener for that canned food, a flashlight with some
extra batteries, a first aid kit, and of course your trusty NOAA weather
radio for those all-important weather updates. And don’t forget about your pets, if you
have any. Be sure to grab some extra food and water
for them as well. Here are some additional emergency supplies that you can put your disaster kit. For more information, please visit ready.gov Sp put that all together and you now
have your very own basic disaster supplies kit. Thanks for watching.
