It is important to prepare for any potential hazard scenario during inclement weather. Being prepared includes making a disaster kit. Ochsner Health System recommends your disaster kits include:  

  • A list of medications that you and your loved ones take, along with at least a week’s supply of your regular medications and medical supplies. Be sure to include a list of instructions, doctors’ orders and dosage recommendations in case you need assistance communicating with others. In the case of a prolonged evacuation, patients with chronic conditions treated by high risk controlled substances are advised to carry a pharmacy print out and letter from their doctor when seeking refills out of state.
  • Extra batteries for items like hearing aids, radios and flashlights.
  • A first aid kit with items like ace bandages, Band-Aids and personal hygiene items.
  • A two day supply of non-perishable foods like peanut butter, protein bars, canned goods, meal replacement shakes and cheese crackers.
  • A three day supply of clean, drinkable water.
  • A waterproof container, preferably one that is insulated, for storing everything in your disaster kit.
  • A communication plan – In addition to having your mobile phone and a back-up battery, talk with family or friends ahead of time to develop a plan. Designate a place to meet up with them in the event you are unable to reach them by phone.


When thinking about packing up medications for a disaster there are a few quick items to pack to ensure your medications are ready to go in a short amount of time.

  • A laminated list of medications and instructions, in case you need assistance communicating with others.
  • A cooler bag for any medications that need to be kept cold.
  • At least a week’s supply of your regular medications and medical supplies or as much as you can keep on hand.
  • Copies of the style and serial numbers of any assistive devices such as oxygen tanks or asthma breathing treatment devices.
  • Medical insurance cards, Medicare/Medicaid cards, physician contact information, list of your allergies and health history stored in a waterproof container.
  • Extra batteries for hearing aids or extra hearing aids if you have them.
  • Extra eyeglasses and backup supplies for any visual aids you use.
  • Small first-aid kit with items like ace bandages, Band-Aids, feminine supplies and personal hygiene items.
  • Any over-the-counter medications you take regularly such as Tylenol or Ibuprofen.
