Preparedness Month: Cash & Documentation (4 of 4)

For the final week of National Preparedness Month, the focus is on cash and emergency documents. Important documents should be kept in a portable water and fire proof box. Make sure to keep an extra copy of all important documents and store them with an out-of-state family member or friend.

This is also a good week to think about any other special items you or your family might need. Think about specific needs for any seniors, babies, those with special needs or pets that might require other supplies in addition to the items we have listed.

By staying up to date and working through each week’s checklist, your family can be prepared to respond during a time of need. We hope you will take what you’ve learned, apply it and share the information with your friends and family. Being prepared can bring help and hope among even the most devastating circumstances.

Preparedness Month: First Aid & Personal Hygiene Checklist (3 of 4)

First Aid is important anytime, but can become vital when it comes to keeping your family safe and healthy in your shelter. While it’s hard to know exactly what you will need before a disaster strikes, there are several key items worth having in your family preparedness kit.

Remember that things like flooding and fires can cause germs to be released that create illnesses so prevention is key. Having these basic supplies and knowing how to treat minor injuries can make a tangible difference for your family or neighbors during a time of need.

This is “First Aid & Personal Hygiene” week of National Preparedness Month so please use the checklist below to stock your kit with first aid items, as well as a 3-day supply of toiletries for each member of the family. While food, water, warmth and technology are important, safety is key.
