When you were chatting with your Oklahoma movers, did the subject of tornadoes ever come up? Usually, people who move to Oklahoma want to know a lot about this weather phenomenon that is common to the area, and it is easy to understand why. If you forgot to discuss a tornado emergency kit, we are happy to fill you in here!
First off, you must be prepared and have your tornado emergency kit ready before you think you will need it. There are a few items that you may have to leave your home, so it is best to have the kit ready to go.
Food & Water
The most important part of the tornado emergency kit is the food and water.
The rule of thumb for waters is one gallon of water, per person, for three days.
For food, keep nonperishables like canned foods or even dried and dehydrated foods, like fruit. If you forgot those extras, be sure to head to your local grocery store and stock up as soon as you can.
Keep batteries for everything. These days there are solar powered phone chargers and backpacks that work well. Keep batteries for flashlights and radios. Also ensure that you have an spare of everything. If you are out of power for a few days or trapped anywhere, you will be grateful that you have spares.
Keep prescription medications and first-aid items in your tornado emergency kit. You can even print out a basic medical treatment plan, just in case.
On behalf of all of our Oklahoma movers, we wish you a happy and safe stay in this great state!
