DOH-Putnam distributed “To-Go-Bags” filled with hurricane season supplies to their Healthy Family program participants. The crisis kits provide important supplies in an emergency preparedness kit that is easy to carry and can be used at home or in case of an evacuation.

Each kit contains a hurricane tracking map and checklist, a poncho, a lantern and flashlights, batteries, a weather radio, bugspray, Lysol wipes, document protectors, adult bathing wipes, a whistle, a manual can opener and a first aid kit. This proactive distribution event enabled DOH-Putnam to help get their community prepared for a hurricane, reminding everyone that the time to prepare is before the season begins.
