Jen Davis, Marketing Director for ServPro shares with us the importance of being prepared during severe weather season. You should prepare a Go-Kit, with enough supplies to sustain you and your family for 3 days in case of an emergency.
A basic emergency supply kit could include the following recommended items:
•Water, one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days, for drinking and sanitation
•Food, at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food
•Battery-powered or hand crank radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert and extra batteries for both
•Flashlight and extra batteries
•First aid kit
•Whistle to signal for help
•Dust mask to help filter contaminated air and plastic sheeting and duct tape to shelter-in-place
•Moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation
•Wrench or pliers to turn off utilities
•Manual can opener for food
•Cell phone with chargers, inverter or solar charger
