By on September 20, 2019

An important part of hurricane readiness is collecting supplies that will help keep your family safe, says the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Before a hurricane, the CDC suggests that you:

  • Prepare an emergency water supply.
  • Prepare emergency food and medicine supplies.
  • Gather a flashlight and first aid kit.
  • Gather personal care products, such as toothpaste and a sanitizer.

The agency says it is also essential to make a hurricane plan. This includes finding out where the nearest shelter is, and writing down emergency phone numbers.
