Properly preparing for a natural is an essential component of survival. Depending on where you live within you may need to prepare more than others; however, as of lately it seems like location does not matter. Hurricanes, tornados, earthquakes, storms, and all manner of natural disasters seem to hot every corner of the globe. While extra food, water, flashlight, and batteries maybe examples mainstay items to get you through a hurricane persons with diabetes may need to carry extra supplies.

In my opinion the single most important factor to prepare for a hurricane (or any storm) is preparation. People with diabetes should have a waterproof emergency kit that includes both medical supplies and personal information. Some supplies include, but are not limited to, the name and contact information of your primary care proper, extra medication, ice packs, extra blood glucose (sugar) testing strips, and many MANY more.

In today’s video I’ll discuss:
A. Personal information you should carry in your hurricane preparedness kit.
B. Essential medical supplies which should be in your hurricane preparedness kit.
