The Texas Department of State Health Services has released a bulletin with suggestions related to hurricane evacuation. I wanted this to be separate from the hurricane Ike thread, so here it is.


The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) has issued the following checklist of health-related items people should take with them in the event of evacuation ahead of Hurricane Ike. Items include:

· Birth certificates

· Immunization records for children and adults

· Driver license, passports or other photo ID and Social Security cards

· Health insurance cards and policies

· Prescription medications and containers

· Any unfilled written prescriptions

· List of medications taken by family members

· Three- to five-day supply of water (one gallon of water per person per day)

· Three- to five-day supply of canned and other non-perishable foods

· Special foods for diabetics and others with special dietary needs

· Baby food, formula, diapers and other supplies for infants

· Food, medicine and supplies for pets

· Hand-operated can opener

· Water-purifier, such as unscented chlorine bleach or iodine tablets

· Soap, toothpaste, tissue and other personal hygiene supplies

· Alcohol-based hand sanitizer

· Disposable cleaning cloths or wipes

· First aid kit

· Extra eyeglasses, contacts and solutions

· Sleeping bags or blankets, sheets, pillows

· Road maps, cell phone and charger and cash.

Kind of looks like Texas is encouraging it's citizens to build your basic B.O.B.
Without any firearms, but oh hell thats Texas, dont think you need to tell a Texan to take his gun thats a given.

Information is Ammunition
