How do you prepare for a hurricane? You’ve got an advantage over other forms of disasters – generally, there is a warning several days in advance. Use those to prepare.
You heard on the news that a hurricane is coming. Now what do you do (besides panic)? What supplies do you need? What’s the plan?
After disaster strikes, you may be days or even weeks from help. One of the things you need to do to prepare is to maintain a good stockpile of food.
In a disaster situation, drinking water is the most important resource. Without enough clean, drinkable water, you will not survive. There are places to get drinking water even if you haven’t stocked up such as your pipes, ice cubes, etc.
Believe it or not, keeping your gas tank full is a good way to improve your odds of survival after a disaster strikes. Don’t let it drop below 75% full.
