Sat Phone Rentals & Sales Made Easy

Hurricane Supplies Checklist

Additional Items to Consider

  • Satellite phone
    This is the ONLY form of long distance communication that will reliably work in the aftermath of a hurricane, tornado, or earthquake. An active satellite phone, with a charged battery, a waterproof case, and a solar charger are all strongly recommended.
  • Drinking Water
    It's very important to have at least a 3 day supply of drinking water available. A minimum of 3 gallons per person in your household is recommended. Also make sure to keep extra water on hand for your pets too.
  • Non-Perishable Food (easy-to-prepare only)
    Keep at least a three day supply of nonperishable, easy-to-prepare food on hand for every person (and pet!) in your household.
  • Manual can opener
    This is a good item to have if any of your nonperishable food is in cans.
  • Hand-crank NOAA weather radio
    This provides a continuous feed of weather information from your nearest National Weather Service office. The NWR broadcasts weather warning, watches, forecasts, and hazard information 24/7/365.
    A battery operated NOAA radio is also okay, but make sure you have extra batteries on hand.
  • Flashlight
    So you can make light when it's dark. It's very handy. Make sure to keep extra batteries!
  • First aid kit
  • Whistle (to signal for help)
    This is great for signaling for help, getting the attention of rescue workers, or alerting anyone who cannot hear your unaided voice.
  • Dust mask
    You never know what might be released into the air when there is a natural disaster. This can help to filter many contaminates out of the air you breathe.
  • Plastic sheeting
    This can be handy for staying dry and/or covering holes when you need to shelter-in-place.
  • Duct tape
    This can be helpful when used with the plastic sheeting, listed above, as well as for many other temporary fixes in an emergency situation.
  • Personal hygiene and sanitation items
    It's good to keep some basic hygiene and sanitation supplies on hand, like moist towelettes, garbage bags with plastic ties, feminine supplies, etc.
  • Multi-purpose tool
    A multi-purpose tool is good for turning off your utilities and to handle the many unpredictable little jobs that may come up
  • Local maps
    Your smartphone might not be able to get an internet connection right after a storm, so a good paper map of the local area is a smart item to have on hand.
  • Prescription medication (7 day supply)
  • Prescription eye glasses
  • Baby supplies (bottles, formula, baby food, diapers
  • Pet supplies (collar, leash, ID, food, carrier, bowl)
  • Important documents (insurance, IDs, bank records, medication list, birth certificates, etc.) in waterproof container
  • Family and emergency contact information
  • Cash or Traveler's checks (smaller bills recommended)
  • Sleeping supplies (sleeping bag, blankets, pillows)
  • Complete change of clothes (long-sleeved shirt, long pants, sturdy shoes, additional clothing if you live in a cold climate)
  • Rain gear
  • Insect repellent
  • Household chlorine bleach & medicine dropper
  • Fire extinguisher
  • Matches in a watertight container
  • Mess kits or picnic supplies (disposable cups, plates, utensils, paper towels)
