Sharing information from Hinckley & FEMA about being prepared in an EMERGENCY situation!

Unexpected Emergencies.

Are you prepared?
Natural disasters or unexpected emergencies can occur and it is best to always be prepared. Here are some guidelines from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA*):
How much?

FEMA recommends storing at least 1 gallon of water per person per day – enough to last at least three days.

Hot Environments

A person with normal activity should drink at least a half gallon of water each day. If you live in a hot environment, children, nursing mothers and those that are ill will require more water.

Daily Care

You will need water for food preparation and personal hygiene. Store at least 1 gallon per person per day.


Will you need water to mix with formula or baby cereal? Prepare accordingly.


Your fur family needs water (and food), too. Be sure to store extra for them.


A mix of nine parts water to one-part bleach can be used as a disinfectant.

Other Needs
Other Needs

Your emergency kit should also include such items as batteries, flashlights, matches and extra clothing.

FEMA checklist
Check your emergency supplies now and be sure you have everything you’ll need in case of stormy weather. If your supplies run low, do not ration water. Drink the amount of you need each day and find more water, and/or supplies, the next day.
