With the recent increase in natural disasters occurring across the country, we wanted to take the time to create a resource that all of you could use, whether it be with your clients or for your own sake.
We’ve compiled a list of recent reports, updates, and safety precaution articles from trusted sources for all types of natural disasters.
These articles are meant to be a resource and will not be personalized or branded as KCM content. To share them on your social media or with clients directly, click the title of the article and use the source’s sharing options.
We hope that you will be able to use these articles to help you and your clients recover from and prepare for impending natural disasters.
Stay safe, everyone!
To assemble your kit, store items in airtight plastic bags and put your entire disaster supplies kit in one or two easy-to-carry containers such as plastic bins or a duffel bag.
A basic emergency supply kit could include the following recommended items:
Water-one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days, for drinking and sanitation
Food- at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food
Battery-powered or hand crank radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert
First aid kit
Whistle to signal for help
Dust mask to help filter contaminated air and plastic sheeting and duct tape toshelter-in-place
Moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation
Store boxed food in tightly closed plastic or metal containers
Replace expired items as needed
Re-think your needs every year and update your kit as your family’s needs change.
Kit Storage Locations
Since you do not know where you will be when an emergency occurs, prepare supplies for home, work and vehicles.
Home: Keep this kit in a designated place and have it ready in case you have to leave your home quickly. Make sure all family members know where the kit is kept.
Work: Be prepared to shelter at work for at least 24 hours. Your work kit should include food, water and other necessities like medicines, as well as comfortable walking shoes, stored in a “grab and go” case.
Vehicle: In case you are stranded, keep a kit of emergency suppliesin your car.
