WHAT YOU SHOULD HAVE
FEMA recommends having a disaster kit that includes:
Three-day supply of nonperishable food
Three-day supply of water, or 1 gallon of water per person per day
Portable, battery-powered radio or television and extra batteries
Flashlight and extra batteries
Sanitation and hygiene items, such as moist towelettes and toilet paper
Matches and a waterproof container
Kitchen accessories and cooking utensils, including a hand-operated can opener
Photocopies of credit and identification cards
Cash and coins
Special-needs items, such as prescription medications, eyeglasses, contact lens solutions and hearing-aid batteries
Items for infants, such as formula, diapers, bottles and pacifiers
Other items to meet your family’s needs
Fill up vehicles with fuel.
Listen to local officials.
Pick people to call who are on and off the Island in case you become separated from family members.
Never use portable generators indoors, in garages or near open windows
If electrical power is lost:
Keep refrigerator and freezer doors closed. An unopened
refrigerator will keep foods cold enough for a couple of hours.
If it looks like power will be out for more than two to four
hours, put refrigerated milk, dairy products, meats, fish,
poultry, eggs, gravy, stuffing and leftovers into a cooler
surrounded by ice.
If the refrigerator was out for more than two to four hours,
discard the perishable items.
A freezer that is half-full will hold for up to 24 hours; a full
freezer for 48 hours. If it appears the power outage will be
prolonged, prepare a cooler with ice for freezer items.
If the freezer is fairly full and it has been without power for less than 24 hours, food should be safe. Expect a loss of quality with refreezing.
Do not eat any food that may have come into contact with
floodwater. If in doubt, discard it.
Do not eat food packed in plastic, paper, cardboard, cloth
and similar containers that have been water-damaged.
Discard food and beverage containers with screw-caps,
snap lids, crimped caps (soda bottles), twist caps, flip tops
and home-canned foods if they have come in contact with floodwater. These containers cannot be disinfected.
