Florida Hurricane Preparation: The Items You Should Prepare

Posted: June 25, 2018 by Global Administrator

Prepare for Florida’s Hurricane Season

Hurricanes are a fact of life when you are a resident of Florida. Often hurricanes are unpredictable and come with only a few days of warning. Preparing for a hurricane is often the best and first line of defense. Below is a list of basics for your manufactured home in the event of a tropical storm or hurricane this season.

Hurricane Preparation List:

Knowing that a normally active and healthy person needs to drink at least two quarts of water each day, store one gallon of water per person per day in plastic containers that will not decompose or break. Plan for at least three days of water per person.

Anticipating needs three days of supplies per person, select non-perishable food that requires no refrigeration, preparation, cooking and little water to prepare. Take into consideration the weight and size as you may need to travel with supplies. Some examples of food that meet the criteria above are ready-to-eat canned meats, fruits and vegetables. Consider packing vitamins, food for infants if applicable, high energy foods, canned juices and any staples such as salt, pepper and other spices.

First Aid
Prepare multiple kits, one to keep in each vehicle and one in your home. You can find prepared kits including adhesive bandages of various sizes, sterile gauze, antibiotic cream, cold packs and antiseptics. Also, pack a waterproof package of non-prescription drugs such as antacids and aspirin or non-aspirin pain reliever. Ensure you pack any necessary prescription drugs you may need to be based upon a 3-day supply.

Tools and Supplies
Consider storing essential tools such as a utility knife, batteries, and battery operated radio, flashlight, tarp or plastic sheet, matches, portable rechargeable batteries for electronics such as a phone charger and a whistle. Think of any necessary personal hygienic supplies, toilet paper, soap or sanitizer.

Include at least one change of clothing and footwear per person. Hats, sturdy shoes or rain boots, rain gear, blankets, and sunglasses are items that can be vital in the event of an emergency.

Prepare care as any other member of the family and do not leave pets behind. Include a week’s supply of food, water and know of friends, family or locations that can assist in fostering. Ensure your pet has proper identification including your name, phone number and updated shots attached to a secure collar.

Documents and Possessions
Portable waterproof containers should contain papers such as insurance policies, stocks, bonds, passport, social security cards, bank account information, credit cards, important telephone numbers, birth/marriage/death certificates and store in a place that is known to all family members.

Hi, I recently bought a Jacobsen home near Labelle, FL and wanted to outfit it with hurricane shutters. Would you have advice on the framing around the doors and windows? Any help would be appreciated.
