Springtime can bring intense storms. With a little planning, you can ensure you are ready for whatever Mother Nature throws your way.

Having a tackle box full of emergency supplies is a great start.

Consider including the following items in the top compartments of the tackle box: flashlight with batteries, hearing-aid batteries, an old pair of prescription glasses, antibiotic ointment, antiseptic wipes, Band-Aids, a one- to two-day supply of vital medications, insulin syringes and insulin. (Please note that insulin is only safe for 30 days at room temperature. When your current insulin bottle is getting low, place that one in your tackle box each month.)

Items to include in the large compartment include a blanket, dry socks, crackers, duct tape, a role of gauze, scissors, several plastic bags and two large trash bags that can be used as ponchos. Keep several bottles of distilled water next to your tackle box for drinking and for wound care.
