|Hardin County Emergency Management highly encourages everyone to be weather ready! Natural disasters can hit at any time, and even
sometimes without a warning, so it is always best to be prepared in case a disaster hits.
A few things you may want to ask yourself when you are getting together a emergency disaster kit and an emergency plan are:
1. How many people do I have in my family that I need to plan for?
2. How many pets will I need to accommodate for?
3. What special or specific needs will I need?
(Examples: prescription medications, accommodations for elderly, or accommodations for infants/children.)
4. Do I have an emergency #'s list accessible in my kit?
5. Have I packed my weather radio, extra batteries, extra phone
charger/battery, and extra flashlight in my kit?
6. Have I pinpointed a "rally point" for my family to go to where we can meet
up again? (Specifically for fires or in due time before severe weather hits.)
7. Have I created an escape plan for a fire that we practice from time to time?
8. Where is a designated "Safe Zone" in my home for my family?
When you are making these emergency supply kits please realize that they are specified to you and your family's needs.
Below is a guideline of what you should highly consider to have in your emergency supply kits:
