HPM's Hurricane Essentials Checklist

Time to tackle that hurricane kit you've been meaning to put together. Now... what to put in your supply box? Food and water—check!
Maybe a flashlight, a first-aid kit and some candles, and you're good to go, right?

Not exactly.

Building a proper hurricane kit and preparing your home takes careful planning and foresight. Especially if you're storing resources for multiple family members, you'll need supplies that are designed for worst-case scenarios, like long waits for goods due to closed ports, power outages and even temporary relocation to a shelter or a friend's home. Include gear that could prove useful in adverse conditions like torrential rain, high wind, storm surges and flooding.

Don't get caught unprepared.

When a potentially dangerous storm moves in, you want to be in a safe space with everything you need, not on the road or stuck in line scrambling to get supplies.

Use this list of basic supplies to help you weather the storm successfully, and keep our suggested recovery/rebuilding items on hand for effective and safe cleanup in the event that your home or community is impacted.
