Hurricane Preparedness Checklist


If you must drive, travel or evacuate, remember to do the following:

If you must drive:

- Pack an emergency travel kit designed to survive extended traffic delays or road closures. The kit should include water, food for all travelers including pets, extra clothing and blankets, fully-charged cell phones, battery operated NOAA weather radio, extra batteries, and extra medications.

- Be sure to have a full tank of gasoline.

- Never drive through high water or flooded areas.

- Be aware of fallen trees, limbs and downed power lines.

If you must travel:

- Stay abreast of local forecasts both at your departure city and your destination.

- Check your airline flight status before leaving for the airport.

- Check with your hotel for local updates on the storm's impact.

- Monitor weather conditions on a regular basis as things can change quickly.

- Travel with only a carry-on bag when flying. This will give you greater flexibility if your schedule changes and you will have your luggage with you if delayed.

- Pack "emergency" comforts with you like snacks, rain coats, and extra clothing, etc. A flashlight with good batteries, radio and extra water are essential.

- Heed all evacuation advisories and/or orders.

If you must evacuate:

- In case of evacuation, plan NOW where you will go and have the plan in place where your family members will meet to evacuate.

- Know multiple routes to your destination.

- Secure your home the best you can.

- Top off your car's gas tank before the storm.

- Have a print-out of all important phone numbers.

- Have your "go" bag ready with all essentials. Clothing, first aid kit, medications, etc. Have at least three day's worth, if not more, of medications and supplies - especially for infants and the elderly.

- Have three days' worth of water, one gallon per day per person, and for your pets.

- Have canned foods and energy/vitamin bars.

- Have flashlights and extra batteries.

- Have a portable radio, monitor the advisories and be prepared for anything.

- Have cash on hand, as ATMs and banks may not be accessible.

- Have protective clothing, rain gear, blankets or sleeping bags.
