Flood Safety and Preparedness

You’ll be better prepared to withstand a flood if you have the following items available – packed and ready to go in case you need to evacuate your home. 

The first step to preparedness is to build or purchase an emergency preparedness kit that includes items such as water, non-perishable food, a flashlight and extra batteries, a battery-powered radio, first aid kit and medications.

Follow the Red Cross Flood Safety Checklist to learn more about what you should do, the supplies you need and what to do after a flood.
