SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS: EMERGENCY SUPPLY KITS

PEARL – The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency and the National Weather Service are highlighting the importance of emergency supply kits for Severe Weather Preparedness Week.

To increase your chances of safely surviving a disaster, develop and familiarize yourself and your family with a disaster plan and maintain a family emergency supply kit.

Make sure your emergency supply kit has life sustaining items such as non-perishable food and water for at least three to five days. An emergency supply kit should include the following:

  • Flashlight(s) with extra batteries.
  • Portable radio with extra batteries.
  • NOAA Weather Radio.
  • Non-perishable food for at least 3 days.
  • Bottled water (1 gallon per person per day).
  • First Aid Kit with prescription medications.
  • Bedding and clothing for each family member.
  • Blankets and towels.
  • Plastic dishes/eating utensils.
  • Rain Jackets/pants.
  • Sun screen/sunglasses/mosquito repellant.
  • Baby supplies (food, diapers, medication).
  • Pet supplies (food, leash & carrier, vaccination records).
  • Sanitary supplies.
  • Toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, cleanser, bleach, towelettes, toilet paper, trash bags, feminine hygiene products.
  • Copies of important documents.
  • Driver’s license, SS card, proof of residence, insurance policies, wills, deeds, birth and marriage certificates, tax records, medical records, family pictures, etc.
  • Cash, enough to fill up your vehicle with gas and travelers checks.
  • Emergency generator.
  • Bicycle helmet.

Another important aspect of emergency supply kits is a communication plan. Every family should have a contact person outside of the area of your home to contact to let everyone know your family is safe.

Governor Phil Bryant declared Feb. 4-10 Severe Weather Preparedness Week in Mississippi.
