Being prepared for disasters is a shared responsibility among all of us.  And today, as we mark the beginning of the Atlantic hurricane season,  the team at ServiceMaster by LoveJoy wants to encourage everyone, families, communities, and businesses - to take action now to prepare. 

As we’ve seen too many times before, all it takes is one major hurricane or tropical storm to devastate a community, neighborhood, or family. When a hurricane hits, it can bring high winds, heavy rainfall, coastal and inland flooding, rip currents, and even tornadoes. That’s why if you live in an area in Atlanta, Georgia where hurricanes are a threat, you need to know where you’d go before the danger arrives and makes evacuation impossible.

Emergency Hurricane Survival Kits Are Essential In A  Hurricane 

Here are steps on how to build a hurricane survival kit

1. Determine how many people you need to prepare for. Depending on your situation, you may have additional guests riding out the storm with you such as elderly relatives. Emergency kits and backpacks are often created to contain enough suppliesfor two to four people.

2. Find a durable backpack or duffle bag to store all of your emergency supplies and gear. We recommend using a backpack to help even out the weight distribution, and this will make it easier to transport should you need to evacuate.

3. Fill your kit with enough non-perishable food and water for each person in the household for three days (72 hours). Keep in mind that you may need to use the water for sanitation purposes as well. 

4. Pack a portable stove so that you can heat up food or water without electricity. If a severe hurricane does strike, it’s possible that power lines will become damaged, knocking out the primary source of electricity in your area.

5. You won’t want to eat food with your fingers, so don’t forget to include bowls and utensils in your kit.

6. Pack a few different light sources that will help you make it through any scenario. 
Lightsticks are great because they provide reliable illumination from up to a mile away and are not dependent on batteries.

7. Pack emergency blankets to stay comfortable when sleeping, should you find yourself in a less than ideal sleeping arrangement. In the event of a hurricane evacuation, hotels may be sold out requiring you to make alternate short-term arrangements for sleeping, like staying in a shelter.

8. Make sure to pack a sharp knife. There are too many uses for a good knife to name, but suffice it to say that you don’t want to be left without one.

9. Make sure you have a battery-operated or hand-crank radio in your kit, just in case the power goes out.

10. Place a first aid kit in your emergency backpack. It’s not uncommon to sustain injuries while evacuating from a hurricane or while cleaning up from the aftermath. Make sure your first aid kit contains the following items:
  • Pain-relieving medication
  • Adhesive and fabric bandages
  • Rubbing alcohol or alcohol cleansing pads
  • Butterfly wound closures
  • Safety pin
  • Antiseptic cleansing wipes
  • Antibiotic ointment
  • Burn cream pack gauze roll bandage

12. Add a whistle to your kit. This may come in handy if you need to signal for help.

13. Include bath wipes in your kit as well. Taking a bath may not be an option right after a hurricane.

14. Don’t forget to include a spare cell phone charger in the kit too. Keep your cell phone charged before the hurricane makes landfall. You'll never know how long the power will be out.

15. Find out if you live in an evacuation area. If you do, locate the closest emergency shelters near your home. Keep in mind when researching shelters that not all of them accept pets.

16. Put a local map in your emergency kit in case you have to evacuate the area.
