Storm Emergency Kit

8/1/2023 (Permalink)

Hurricane season is upon us. Living in the metropolitan region, sudden summer thunderstorms are a common occurrence. It is never too early to prepare your family and home for hurricanes, severe weather, or natural disasters. Use this guide to help you prepare a basic storm kit, to survive for 48 hours to 1 week or more without electricity. Getting prepared is as simple as getting a plastic tote, filling it with these items, and tucking it away until the day comes that you need it. Your basin emergency kit should include, but is not limited to, these items: 

  • Water (one gallon per person per day for at least three days) 
  • Food (at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food)  
  • Battery-powered radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert  
  • Flashlight and/or light sticks  
  • First aid kit  
  • Extra batteries  
  • Whistle (to signal for help)  
  • Dust mask (to help filter contaminated air)  
  • Plastic sheeting and duct tape (to shelter in place)  
  • Blankets or sleeping bags  
  • Moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties (for personal sanitation)  
  • Basic tools - a hammer, screwdriver, and a wrench or pliers  
  • Manual can opener   
  • Cell phone chargers - including a car charger 

If a storm does cause damage to your property, SERVPRO of Annapolis/Severna Park will be here to help. Call us any time day or night 410-647-8181.
