At the January 10th Sea Trail Garden Club meeting Chris Gray, a resident of Sea Trail, gave a very informative talk about the Red Cross and emergency preparedness.  They wanted to share some information that she shared with them.  Chris suggested that you keep an emergency kit in your home with the following items:

water
non-perishable food
flashlight
solar radio
first aid kit
medications
personal hygiene kit
change of clothes
copies of important papers
extra money
maps of the area
emergency numbers and contacts
glasses/sunglasses
blanket
gloves
cell phone charger
Sounds like great advice!
