Shelter in Place
Many emergencies require you to shelter in place. Hazardous materials incidents are an example of an emergency which may require you to stay-put. Your venturing outside or going anywhere may pose a great risk to yourself or your loved ones.
When considering sheltering in place, again, you should have the necessary supplies on hand to manage your daily care. This includes food and water along with other everyday necessities. Make your disaster supply kit and keep an overstock of food-stuff items. Particularly those items that do not require cooking.
Should an event occur that requires you to shelter in place, officials will let you know at the outset on the best manner to manage the circumstances of the emergency.
Here is a brief list of essentials you may require:
- Plastic Sheeting
- First Aid Kit
- Non-Perishable Food
- Fresh Batteries
- Duct Tape
- AM / FM Battery-Powered Radio
- NOAA Weather Alert Radio
- Activities for yourself and your children (books, games, etc...)
