Shopping list for your family's Storm Safety Supply Kit

Posted: Updated:
It's important to stay prepared for whatever Mother Nature might bring, and this includes putting together a Storm Safety Supply Kit. There are several basic supplies needed for every disaster supply kit, and the first is fresh water. Members of the community should stock up on at least three days worth of fresh water. This stash of water should be enough to provide at least one gallon of water per person in your household, per day.

Stocking up on food is also essential. Families should plan to fill their pantries with at least a three to five day food supply of non-perishable packaged or canned goods. Basic tools such as can openers should also be readily available. You also need extra clothing, proper rain gear, and sturdy shoes.

And just in case a worst-case scenario does arise, a first-aid kit made up of essentials such as Band-Aids, bandages, and prescription medications needs to be stocked and ready to go. And although you might think it's standard for storm-veterans here on Guam, it's important not to forget other basics such as a battery-powered radio, flashlights, and lots of extra batteries. Identification cards, credit cards, cash, and important family documents should also be organized.

All of these items when put together, make for a complete disaster supply kit.
