    Hurricane Preparedness Kit: Must-Have Off-Grid Items

    September 04, 2019 2 min read

    In early September 2019, the states of North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, and parts of Georgia were under a state of energy in anticipation of Hurricane Dorian. When Dorian makes landfall it is expected to knock out parts of the grid in many areas of these states. With this in mind, experts recommend putting together a hurricane preparedness kit for you and your family that can last for a minimum of seven days. 

    Here are some of the absolute essential items for any basic kit recommended by FEMA.

    Water: 1 gallon per person for seven days. This is for drinking, cooking, and personal sanitation.

    Food: Enough for seven days. Pack non-perishable canned food and juices. Remember to pack a manual can opener, along with paper plates and plastic utensils.

    First aid kit

    Tools: This includes a flashlight, battery-powered or hand-crank radio (NOAA Weather Radio, if possible), extra batteries, and a Swiss Army knife. 


    Clothing – Include a complete change of clothes, along with thick-heeled shoes to protect from sharp objects and debris lying around post-storm. 

    Pillows, Blankets and/or Sleeping Bags

    Clothing – Include a complete change of clothes suitable for your areas climate. Be sure to include sturdy shoes to protect you from debris or other sharp objects you may encounter outdoors post-storm.

    GoSun Items for Your Hurricane Preparedness Kit

    Items that GoSun produces that might be useful in your hurricane preparedness kit include any of our solar cookers, which are a fuel-free means of boiling water, our solar phone charger for emergency communication purposes, and lastly our solar cooler, which will keep perishable food fresh off the grid.

    The GoSun Sportis the handiest way to boil water and cook food when the electrical grid is down. It can bake, roast, and steam a meal for two people in 20 minutes under direct sun. It's light and compact so you can take it anywhere.

    With the GoSun Solar Phone Charger, you can charge your phone, flashlight and more for hours. Our charger can charge your phone up to 5 full times without having to recharge, and that doesn't count it trickle charging with the sun.

    The GoSun Chill can keep food cold, frozen, dry, and organized with no ice required. The included PowerBank+ also lets you charge USB devices.
