It's a smart idea for every family to have a survival kit in case of emergencies.

Survival Kit

When preparing for a disaster, be sure to make a survival kit that includes:

  • Canned or other non-perishable food
  • Non-electric can opener
  • First aid kit and manual
  • Portable radio and/or television
  • Flashlights
  • Extra batteries
  • Water in non-breakable containers
  • Prescription medicines as needed
  • Extra clothing and blankets
  • Emergency cash and credit cards
  • A copy of your insurance policy

Incase of a flood you want to do the following:



  • Learn the flood warning signs and alert signals of your community.
  • Collect emergency building materials if you live in a frequently flooded area: plywood, plastic sheeting, lumber, nails, shovels and sandbags.
  • Prepare a survival kit.
  • Plan and practice an evacuation route. Establish a meeting place should your family get separated.
  • Review how to shut off utilities in an emergency with all family members.
  • Check your insurance policy. Ask your agent at C&E Insurance about flood insurance. Homeowners policies do not usually cover flood damage.


  • Listen to a battery operated radio or television for the latest storm information. If advised to evacuate, do so immediately.
  • Move to high ground, avoid rising waters and do not walk or drive through any floodwaters.
  • Stay away from downed power lines and electrical wires.


  • Listen to the radio and do not return home until authorities indicate it is safe to do so.
  • Be watchful of snakes that may have found their way into your home.
  • Throw away all food that has come in contact with floodwaters.
  • If your basement has flooded, pump out the water gradually. Remove about 1/3 per day to avoid structural damage.
  • Promptly report the loss to your insurance company.
