What to Have in a Hurricane Preparedness Kit at Our Apartments Near The Villages, FL

PepperTree Apartment Homes is a beautiful community located in equally beautiful Central Florida. But sometimes living in Florida also means hunkering down for the occasional hurricane. According to the National Hurricane Center, here are the basic supplies you should have on hand in the event of a hurricane:

  • Water- you should stock one gallon of water per person per day, for at least three days. So, for example, if two people live in your home, you should stock up on at least six gallons of water.

  • Food - similarly, you should stock three days’ worth of food for everyone in your household.

  • Radio - a battery-powered or hand-crank powered radio will allow you to get important weather and news updates even if the power goes out.

  • Flashlights - these will provide light in the event the power goes out.

  • Batteries - to power the radio and/or flashlights.

  • First aid kit - having a well-stocked first aid kit on hand will allow you to treat mild injuries at home, instead of needing to head out during the storm.

  • Tool kit - in case small repairs need to be made, or you need to shut off a water supply, it is good to have basic tools on hand.

In addition to these supplies, it is also advisable to have a list of contact information handy for local hospitals and emergency services. If our residents secure these items at the beginning of hurricane season, then they can rest easy knowing they are better prepared for storms that might come close our apartments near The Villages, FL.
