An Emergency Kit is an important step to prepare, survive and recover from an emergency and in that kit, you should have the following:

  • 10 litres of water per person (fill up the bath and buckets with clean water)
  • Non-perishable food for 3 days
  • A First Aid Kit and Manual
  • Essential medications and prescriptions
  • A torch
  • Battery powered radio
  • Waterproof jackets and closed shoes for everyone
  • As well as a whistle, utility knife, masking tape and plastic garbage bags.

If a Cyclone is approaching do the following:

  • Tape up your windows with wide, tape in a criss-cross pattern
  • Take in any loose items like garden furniture and toys
  • Disconnect all electrical appliances and external TV and radio aerials
  • Park any vehicles under cover, away from trees, powerlines and waterways.
  • Go to the strongest part of your house – normally the smallest room with the least windows and stay listening to your radio.
