First Aid and Medication
In an emergency or natural disaster first responders may be overwhelmed trying to respond to an event. In some instances you may be unable to reach a hospital or clinic. That’s why it’s important to keep medical records, supplies and prescriptions easily accessible and to learn simple first aid techniques. Creating a “stay healthy” kit will help you keep up with urgent medical needs. The kit should include:

A week’s supply of medicines in a plastic bag labeled with each family member’s name;
  • Place special tags on specialized equipment with operating instructions so someone unfamiliar with the item can provide help;
  • First aid supplies such as bandages, aspirin and antiseptic cream; and
  • Use the household health information sheet in FEMA’s “Rx For Readiness” guide to fill in medical information for each family member. Make copies of the sheet to keep in your home, car and workplace.
  • Healthcare Ready: Rx Open: When a disaster occurs, Healthcare Ready activates Rx Open maps to help the public and emergency responders see which pharmacies are open or closed in the affected area. Healthcare Ready also monitors international disasters that may affect the delivery of critical medicines in the United States.

If a natural disaster disrupts basic services like water, contagious diseases can spread. Simple preventive measures including using alcohol-based hand sanitizer can help you avoid getting or spreading germs.
