Pack a Medication Go-Bag for Emergencies

7/11/2019 (Permalink)

Be prepared for a sudden natural disaster emergency with a well-stocked medication go-bag.

A well-stocked medication go-bag can save your life during a hurricane, flood, fire or other emergency. But don’t wait until a storm threatens.

Whether you buy a kit from a drugstore or build it yourself, keep a medication go-bag on hand that includes: 

  • At least seven days’ worth of over-the-counter and prescription medications you take on a regular basis
  • A copy of your health insurance card
  • An antihistamine for allergic reactions
  • Pain relievers
  • Stomach, antacid and antidiarrheal remedies
  • Antiseptic wipes; an antibiotic ointment; and bandages, gauze and tape, for treating burns, cuts and wounds
  • Mosquito repellent and aloe gel, hydrocortisone cream or calamine lotion
  • Eyewash solution
  • Water-purification tablets
  • Scissors and tweezers
  • Thermometer

If you and your family have special medical needs, keep a more sophisticated kit—stocked with hearing aids with extra batteries, an epinephrine auto-injector, glasses, contact lenses or syringes, for example.
