Items to consider when preparing your severe weather preparedness kit for the home:

Water (one gallon of water per person for at least 3 days)
Food (a 3 day supply of non-perishable food for each person in your family)
Can openers and utensils
Weather Radio(with back up batteries installed in case of a power outage)
First aid kit
Blankets/jackets (they keep you warm in the winter, and they protect you from potentially dangerous debris during spring/summer/fall thunderstorms)
An extra pair of sturdy shoes (in case there’s debris left behind after the storm)
Sanitation items (soap, moist towelettes, hand sanitizer gel)
Flash lights and batteries
Special needs items for your family:
Extra medication (enough for a week); copies of prescriptions
Pet food water, health forms, IDs for family dogs, cats, birds, etc
Extra food, water, bottles, diapers, etc for families with infants and young children
Extra medication, denture care, spare eyeglasses or contact lenses with solution, spare hearing aid batteries for elderly family members

Emergency safety kit for the car:

Jackets/blankets
Sturdy shoes or boots.
Water
Non-Perishable Food
Extra Phone Charger(s)

This is a basic list to get your started. There are always more extensive lists and kits, depending upon the specific needs that you and your family may have.

Take the time to build your kits and .prepare yourself for severe weather events.
