Survival Kit

Assembling a Survival Kit

Share your plans with a relative/friend outside the area. Call them after a disaster and let them know that you are all right and where you will be if your home is damaged. When a hurricane or other emergency is threatening Pasco County, continually monitor radio and/or TV to determine if you are included in the evacuation area. If your area is ordered to evacuate, gather your belongings and proceed to your evacuation destination. If you have registered for transportation, units will be dispatched to your location. If time allows you will receive a confirming telephone call.

Pack a Hurricane Survival Kit with the following items:

  • Medications (2 Week Supply)
  • Medical Support Equipment (Wheelchairs, Walkers, Dessings, Oxygen, Feeding Equipment, etc.)
  • Name & Phone Number of your doctor, home health agency, hospital, next of kin, etc.
  • ID and any valuable papers.
  • Food for special dietary needs, personal hygiene items, change of clothes, and a sweater.
  • Lawn chair or cot, blankets or sleeping bags, pillows, and a flashlight.
  • A copy of your nursing orders.
  • Books, playing cards, or board games to pass the time
  • Cash for purchases after a disaster.
