Hurricane Irene And Multi-Pure

Aug 27th 2011 at 12:24 PM

The Presidential Proclamation is available at

"We never know where the next hurricane or disaster will strike, but we know that the more we do to prepare now, the better the outcome will be," said FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate. "FEMA will continue to work with our private sector, local, state, tribal and federal partners to ensure that we are prepared, but it is also important that all Americans take the necessary steps now- like developing a family disaster plan - before a hurricane or disaster strikes."

Multi-Pure's emergency backpack is an incredible value, especially because it includes 2 of our emergency water filters, the EF8! Whether it's a hurricane or some other kind of emergency, these kits will help you and your loved ones survive until more help can arrive.

FEMA suggests that important items to have ready in case of an emergency include a battery-powered radio (like the one in Multi-Pure's kit), flashlight, extra batteries, medicines, non-perishable food, hand-operated can opener, utility knife and first aid supplies.

Copy and store your important documents in a waterproof bag. These may include medical records, contracts, property deeds, leases, banking records, insurance records and birth certificates.  

This is the time to consider potential needs of everyone in the household during an emergency. If your household includes a person with a disability, special steps to assist them may be necessary and should be considered now.
Pets also require special handling. They may become agitated during the onset of a storm, so a pet carrier is a must for safe travel. Pet owners should research pet boarding facilities now within a certain radius of where you may evacuate, since animals may not be welcome in all shelters or hotels.

The Atlantic and Central Pacific Hurricane Season runs from June 1-November 30. The Eastern Pacific Hurricane Season started on May 15.
