Disaster Preparedness

FORT LEE,Va. Although military commissaries aren't equipped to predict the next emergency, they do encourage their patrons to use their benefit to be prepared.

The Defense Commissary Agency routinely offers savings compared to commercial stores on the necessary items for any emergency, said agency Sales Director Tracie Russ.

"It would be nice if we could accurately predict the impact of the next storm when it came to power outages, interruptions in available water and store closures. However, we do know from past experience it's better to plan for the unexpected," Russ said. "That's why we work with our industry partners to offer deep discounts on many of the food products and other items our patrons need to be prepared."

As they take stock in their state of readiness, military patrons can shop their local commissaries for the following items, considered appropriate for disaster preparedness: beef jerky and other assorted meat snacks, soup and chili mixes, canned goods, powdered milk, cereals, batteries, airtight bags, weather-ready flashlights, tape (all-weather, heavy-duty shipping and duct), first-aid kits, lighters, matches, lanterns, candles, hand sanitizer and anti-bacterial wipes. Specific items may vary from store to store.

According to a May 13 forecast from the Weather Channel, the 2016 hurricane season is expected to have 14 named storms, eight of which will be hurricanes with three of the hurricanes potentially being category 3 or higher.

The North Atlantic hurricane season runs June 1 to Nov. 30 and covers the North Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico. Tornado season runs from April to July.

Emergency preparedness officials suggest having a disaster supply kit that includes the following items:
"Water  at least one gallon daily, per person (three-day supply for evacuation, two-week supply for home)
"Nonperishable foods  canned meats, fruits, vegetables, dried fruits, nuts, raisins, cereal, crackers, cookies, energy bars, granola, peanut butter, and foods for infants and the elderly (three-day supply for evacuation, two-week supply for home)
"Paper goods  writing paper, paper plates, paper towels and toilet paper
