It is important to have flood insurance in Tampa because if you are caught in a hurricane, will you know what to do? Take care of your health, in case of disaster too!
Although the Tampa Bay area has not been hit by a hurricane recently, that doesn’t mean the community is immune to disaster. It is important to know what precautions to take when in the midst of a storm, especially when it comes to your health. The following tips have been provided by a section in the St. Petersburg Times:
Drinking water. Store at least a two-week supply for each member of your family. That means at least 1 gallon of drinking water per person per day. Children, nursing mothers and those with illness will need more. If you fill your own empty bottles from the tap, they will be good for about two days at room temperature, two weeks if refrigerated.
Consumables. Have at least a three-day supply of nonperishable food on hand. Even after the storm passes, it may be several days before stores reopen and restock. High-nutrition foods that require no refrigeration, preparation or cooking are optimal. Some suggestions: peanut butter and jelly, granola bars, canned meats such as tuna fish, fresh and dried fruits, vegetables, canned juices, milk and soup; staples such as salt, pepper, sugar, instant coffee, iced tea mix or flavored waters; individual packets of condiments such as ketchup, mustard and mayonnaise that don't need to be refrigerated.
See that your first aid kit has bandages, antiseptics, tape, compresses, pain relievers, anti-diarrhea medication and antacids, as well as meds for routine illnesses such as colds. Supplies for elderly or the ill should include Depends, bed pads, medications, special foods. For infants have medicines, diapers, formula, bottles, wipes. Stock a two-week supply of vitamins and medications.
