Dollar Tree Hurricane Emergency Kit Survival Supplies

Dollar Tree hurricane emergency kit survival supplies prepping bug out bag hi it’s AlaskaGranny Alaska Prepper hurricane season is
upon us and it’s not too late to head out to the Dollar Tree to pick up some
emergency supplies hurricane kit that can help see you through a hurricane the Dollar Tree is a
great place to think about all kinds of emergency supplies whether it’s a
hurricane or some other disaster survival situation you can build your prepping supply bug out bag survival gear a little at a
time ahead of time but if you find yourself in the path of a hurricane you
still have some warning get to the Dollar Tree and stock up the things I
would suggest for hurricane survival emergency supplies diy kit you start with water bottled water you can find bottled water in
six-packs you can also find water in the gallons sized bottles the gallon bottles of water are
sturdier and those are the ones that I like to stockpile for all kinds of
emergencies check out the food aisle at Dollar Tree you may not be able to cook in a hurricane find snacks that
you can open and eat granola bars breakfast bars energy bars beef jerky
fruit packs pudding packs things foods that you could just open and eat in nearly
any situation they also have some little heat up cans like sterno called fancy heat fuel and you
can use those fuel cans to warm up a can of chili or soup or something like that for a meal
make sure if you stock up on canned goods foods that you
also get some can openers then head to the first aid aisle at Dollar Tree stock up on
first aid supplies everything from band-aids to ointments to Gauze strips and tape lots of Emergency
Situations involve rendering first aid if you don’t have a good supply of first aid items at home
this is the time to get it get some from Dollar Tree stockpile over-the-counter medications cough
medicines any kind of medicines and things that your family would normally want that you may
not already have on hand grab them now and head on to the hygiene aisle you’re
going to want to make sure that in a hurricane you have hand sanitizer wet wipes toilet paper
Kleenex and garbage bags to make sure that you can dispose of those things
make sure you get big garbage bags from Dollar Tree because after a storm there tends to be
lots and lots of trash debris things to clean up
get some soaps and cleaners maybe a broom and some rubber gloves because
storms bring damage and destruction and messes and you’re going to need some
cleanup supplies and you can find those at the Dollar Tree if you’re heading
outside they have rain ponchos and umbrellas
make sure you stock up on those if the lights go out you can use things like
glow sticks or a little battery operated candles they also will of course have
regular candles and then you want to make sure that you get matches and
lighters so that you can light the things that you have I like to get the
tallest candles because these tall candles can burn for up to 80 hours that
could provide a lot of light over several nights that you didn’t have
access to electricity when you look for matches and lighters the lighters will
come in packs you can also find the long utility lighters you can find boxes big
boxes and matches or you can find packs with lots of small boxes I think they
come in an eight pack of small matches these are strike on the box make sure
you keep them dry and that you keep them with the box
these matches don’t work unless you use the strike plate on the side of the box look
for little flashlights here are a couple that I picked up at the Dollar Tree one
has a carabiner so you can clip it to something to keep it handy keep flashlights by
your bed scatter them around the house have a flashlight for everyone and make sure that
you stock up on the batteries that keep them running you can find batteries and
eight to ten packs if you’re looking for heavy-duty heavier duty batteries the Dollar Tree
are also now carrying some alkaline batteries just make sure whatever it is
that what size you need you stockpile plenty of them at a dollar a pack it would
certainly pay not to run out of batteries you also need to make sure
that you keep track of your most important documents you can even look
for a document type pouch at Dollar Tree like this one or you could use a giant Ziploc bag or even look for
one of their little like a tool box keep copies of everything important documents in there from your
identification to your medical cards your car insurance a set of housekeys
passports immunization records all the important papers how to contact your
credit card companies your bank account records and your insurance company keep
a copy of all of those items ready to go for every emergency situation after the hurricane
storm you’ve ridden it out now what maybe you have some damage in your house
so you might want to have things like drop cloths and little hardware sets to
seal up broken windows you may want bungee cords to tie things together and
hold them down you can find those things on the hardware aisle at the Dollar Tree
you may not be able to run your electric dryer but if you have lots of wet things
get some rope and some clothes pins you can hang things out to dry
because the Sun does come out again after a hurricane and you’ll have the
opportunity to clean up dry out and get your life back together but you need the
supplies to be able to do that another thing you might want to pick up is a
sewing kit things get ripped and torn you can easily put them back together
with a sewing kit from Dollar Tree cleaning up after hurricane can also
mean damp standing water look for mosquito coils look for some wet wipes
that are designed as mosquito repellent you might be spending a lot of time
outside because the air conditioner doesn’t work get some sunscreen look for
a hat get some clean socks and underwear you can find all those things if you
don’t have time to do laundry you can find those items at the Dollar Tree I
also found some aloe vera towelettes if you do get
sunburned because you didn’t use enough sunscreen this can help relieve any
burns if you have pets head down the pet aisle if you’re stuck inside maybe you
want some potty pads for your dog an extra leash to make sure you can keep
track of him stock up on some small packages of pet
food keep these together then should you have to evacuate you also have your pet
supplies ready to go if you have a baby make sure you have ample supplies of wet
wipes diapers diaper disposal bags and any food that your baby would need
prepping for emergencies doesn’t have to be expensive it’s better to do it a lot
of time long before you need it but if a hurricane is heading your way or you’re
in the path of the remnants of a hurricane check over your supplies make
sure you have food water first aid sanitation supplies a way to provide
light and things to repair and clean up after the fact a hurricane is not the
time to decide to be a hero if you are asked to evacuate you should always have
a bug-out bag put your supplies together in a plastic tote and be ready to leave
if you need to keep your car full of gas cash on hand and pay attention to the
weather report and what the news is reporting for your own safety and

  1. Great tips! I love those tall candles and put them in a coffee cup, so they can't tip over or if you have to pick it up and carry it around the house, you won't burn your fingers if the glass is hot.

  2. I just wanted to say thanks for being faithful to this. Its been 2 years since I saw your videos. I took a look at my subscriptions and I saw this video.

  3. The last relief team I worked with, we went through tons,(or what felt like it) of gloves of all sorts. The thin rubber ones for medical, lots of rubber cleaning gloves and the cotton work gloves and gardening gloves. Loved your list in this video! My daughter is now hooked on DT, so each week we've been taking a portion of our budgets and stocking up on emergency supplies. Your list brought to my attention some things I really should add to my stock. Thanks so much for your timely videos and the help you give.
