Emergency Planning: Get a Kit, Make a Plan, Be Informed

Emergency Preparedness Tips for Seniors

  • Stay with family/friends: Whenever possible, you should find shelter with family or a caregiver.
  • Create a list of resources: If power is lost, you may lose access to your cell phone and computer. Write down contact information for friends and family, doctors, pharmacists, and local disaster relief.
  • Stockpile nonperishable food and water. You should plan 1 gallon of water per day per person.
  • Stay in touch with family and friends: Share your plan with your friends and family. If you are safe, contact your friends and family members to check in, and check in on friends or family who may be alone.
  • Collect & Protect Documents: Prepare for hurricanes and storms several months in advance. In case of flooding, make sure copies of deeds, personal identification, insurance policies, social security cards, & birth certificates are in one place, ideally in a sealed plastic bag or waterproof container.
  • Assemble a Medical Kit: This kit should include a two pairs of clean clothes, an extra set of eyeglasses or contact lenses, hand sanitizer and other personal hygiene products, medications, medical ID, personal documents, and travelers’ checks and/or cash.
  • Prepare for pets: Bring your pets with you. Be aware of shelters that accept pets and stock up on food and water for your dog and cat.
  • Medication Check: Ask your doctor and pharmacist for an extra month’s supply of medication. If power and roads are not accessible, having an extra supply of medication will not only help prevent you from running out, but will is also a mental relief.
