  • 2 min read

Hurricane season is upon us and it is a big deal. It is absolutely vital that we take this time of year seriously and prepare in case of a natural disaster. We get it - thinking about worst case scenarios are never fun, but creating a plan is necessary to ensure that no matter what comes our way, we can be prepared, and as safe as possible. There are endless lists out there telling you everything you need to have, but we know that practically, you need to see something you will actually be able to replicate and that is why we have narrowed down the top 10 things you will need in a hurricane survival kit. These will help you to be ready for anything!

10 Things You Need For A Hurricane Survival Kit

1. Extra Clothes

2. Battery Operated Radio

3. Ready To Eat Food

4. First Aid Kit

5. Water

6. Flashlight

7. Safety Whistle

8. Phone

9. Important Documents

10. Emergency Cash

For the most part, these are pretty self explanatory and you should not have much trouble coming up with them before a hurricane hits, however the trouble comes when we decide to put off shopping for and storing these items and then they are sold out. It is so important to be sure that you are preparing for the worst, before the mad dash to the grocery stores. Make it a priority to have a “hurricane box” in your home where you keep these products and check it throughout the year to be sure that exerting is still working and is still dated well.

OMEALS has a passion for sharing emergency preparedness - in fact, it is one of the main reasons why we promote our shelf stable, ready to eat foods! Having delicious and nutritious food is of top priority, especially in the case of a hurricane that can easily take your power and water supply from you in an instant. Having our meals on hand (that can last up to 5 years!) is a responsible way to ensure that you and your family will be well taken care of.
