4 Must-Have Items to Have On-Hand For Emergencies

Emergencies happen, and it's best to be prepared for them so you can weather the storm. Whether the power goes out or a hurricane strikes, the better prepared you are, the less stress you will experience during the event. Pro-Klean is a Connecticut restoration company that offers emergency restoration services. Below, we'll take a look at four must-have items to have on-hand when an emergency strikes. Call us today!

Food & Water

Since we can't live without food and water, this is the first thing you should stock up on in case of an emergency. It's recommended to have at least one gallon of water per person for several days that can be used for drinking and for sanitation needs and to have at least a three-day non-perishable food supply on-hand, too.

Flashlights & Candles

Humans cannot see without light, so if an emergency strikes in the middle of the night, you could face hazards of just walking around your home if you can't see. It's recommended to have flashlights and candles on-hand for everyone.

Set of batteries

Batteries & A Radio

While the internet is a wonderful tool, it can go down when an emergency strikes, such as a tornado or a hurricane. It's a good idea to have a hand-held radio for communication needs, as well as extra batteries to power items such as your flashlight, radio, and more.

Stocked first aid kit

First Aid Kit

It's essential that you have a first-aid kit for emergencies since the odds of someone getting hurt go up. First-aid kits should contain items such as band-aids, sterile gloves, antibiotic ointment, pain reliever, such as aspirin, a thermometer, and more.
