What supplies do I need to be ready for a hurricane?

Posted on May 7, 2021 in Hurricane Preparedness, Hurricane- FAQ

Because Hawai’i is so far from mainland warehouses and our supply chain may be disrupted by a hurricane or other disaster, emergency managers recommend that residents should be “2 Weeks Ready,” with a stockpile that includes:

  • 14 days of shelf-stable food
  • Water (one gallon per person per day)
  • Medicine that members of your household need
  • Hygiene items, including masks and sanitizer
  • Emergency preparedness items including a crank- or battery-powered radio, flashlight and extra batteries, first-aid kit, manual can opener, etc.

Remember to include pet food and supplies if needed. Review your kit each year to make sure it meets the needs of your household.
