The First 72 is on You!
You may hear this phrase a lot when people discuss tropical storms, severe weather or hurricanes. What this means is that you need to be prepared to be completely on your own for at least 72 hours. Enough food, water, medical supplies, prescriptions and more for each member of your family. Ready.gov suggests being prepared for a full week. This is due to the time it may take for help to arrive in your area. With major storms, debris has to be cleared just to get equipment and emergency vehicles in to an impacted area, so if you are prepared for a full 72 hours, you have given responders 3 full days to work.
