What Do I Take to the Shelter?

The American Red Cross offers tips on what to take with you if you need to head to a storm shelter.

Say you’re out of power and you’re evacuating to a shelter.

Well, what do you bring?

You’ll need a go bag. Think hard on what you need to get by without being in your house for up to three days. Suggestions:

  • Flashlight
  • Radio (hand crank or battery-powered)
  • Extra batteries
  • First aid kit
  • Medications
  • Multi-purpose tool
  • Sanitation/personal hygiene items
  • Cell phone and charger
  • Emergency blanket
  • Emergency contact card
  • Extra cash
  • Map
