Essentials for your Home Emergency Kit!

    Essentials for your Home Emergency Kit!

    Nov 12, 2020

    No matter the time of year, you never know when you may need an emergency kit! Heavy rain, snow, ice, random accident – so many reasons why your power could go out at any time. 

    Here is a simple list of items to gather that will keep you prepared in case of an emergency!

    • Flashlight/Candles – make sure you have a way to be able to see in the dark! Have a variety – hand held, headlamp, key chain, lantern – that way you have light for any situation.

    • Information Source – a battery-powered radio is a great item to have! It is important you have the ability to stay informed on what is going on.

    • Batteries – have batteries of all types and sizes! You will need them for flashlights, radio and phone! Have back up phone chargers prepped so you can use them to power your phone.

    • First Aid Supplies – have a kit filled with bandages, pain relievers, antiseptic cream, gloves, first aid tape and cleaning wipes. Hopefully you won’t need these items, but if you do, you will be thankful you had this ready to go!

    • Miscellaneous Items – A few things you may not always need but would be good to include: Bottled Water, Snacks, Blanket, Generator, supply of must have Medications and items for pets.

    As the saying goes, better safe than sorry!
