A checklist and emergency supplies sit on a kitchen counter. We respond to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in the Plainfield area.

Basic Disaster Supplies Kit

If a severe storm hit Shorewood, would you be ready to survive on your own for several days? SERVPRO® of Plainfield/Naperville South responds to storm damage emergencies throughout the year, and offer these tips for building a basic disaster supplies kit from the Federal Emergency Management Agency:

A basic emergency supply kit could include the following recommended items:

  • Water (one gallon per person per day for at least three days, for drinking and sanitation)
  • Food (at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food)
  • Battery-powered or hand-crank radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert
  • Flashlight
  • First aid kit
  • Extra batteries
  • Whistle (to signal for help)
  • Dust mask (to help filter contaminated air)
  • Plastic sheeting and duct tape (to shelter in place)
  • Moist towelettes, garbage bags, and plastic ties (for personal sanitation)
  • Wrench or pliers (to turn off utilities)
  • Manual can opener (for food)
  • Local maps
  • Cell phone with chargers and a backup battery

To assemble your kit, store items in airtight plastic bags and put your entire disaster supplies kit in one or two easy-to-carry containers such as plastic bins or a duffel bag.
