The Red Cross offers a full range of Safety Steps for Hurricane Irma as well as all other natural disasters.

Additionally, the following tips may be helpful for people with PD.

  • Ensure you have water. One to two gallons of water per person, per day is recommended. You should have a three-day supply on hand for evacuation and a two-week supply at home.
  • Pack your medications and make a list of them as well as the names of your doctors and their contact information.
  • Create a disaster preparedness kit that includes: food, a flashlight, a radio, cash, mobile phone/charger and personal documents.
