Oklahoma's weather is unpredictable so a disaster kit is vital in every home.

When preparing for a tornado, or any natural disaster, you should have your disaster supply kit accessible. Your kit should include the following items:

  • First aid kit and essential medications
  • Canned food and can opener
  • At least three gallons of water per person
  • Protective clothing, rainwear and bedding or sleeping bags
  • Battery-powered radio, flashlight and extra batteries, cell phone
  • Special items for infants, elderly or disabled family members
  • Written instructions for how to turn off electricity, gas and water if authorities advise you to do so
  • A camera to document damage for insurance purposes
