Basic Disaster Supplies Kit / Links

Storm Surge Map
Yep, it's that time again. Hurricane season--June 1 through November 30. And with the Tornados that haven't been that far from us, it's time to think about your survival kits and supplies. We'd like to share this wonderful link from FEMA for checklists for supplies, first aid, water prep, and more. Click the links on the left side to browse through the different check lists: www.ready.gov/basic-disaster-supplies-kit

I always keep a metal cup in my survival kit. (Mine's an old measuring cup). I was told a long time ago that it's good for heating up food with a small lighter, or shielding a candle from the wind.

Kudos to WWN for posting this article. I took a few minutes to review the information and was also impressed with the cities evacuation plan and how clear it was to understand.
I also attended the hurricane conference again this year and have a much better understanding of not only storm surge/excess rain but all of the health issues etc that arise after a storm.
I commend our EMC's for hosting a wonderful program
