• If you know a storm is coming, arrange to have dialysis early, before the storm arrives. Also, before the storm, start eating a more restrictive diet to control the build-up of potassium, phosphorus, urea, and fluid while you’re unable to have dialysis. 
  • Make a disaster preparedness (prep) kit. Choose a safe place in your home that’s easy to access, where you will keep all of your disaster prep supplies and materials. If something happens, you’ll know exactly where to go to find everything you need. 
  • Plan how you will keep food and medicines cold if the power goes out.
  • Plan two evacuation routes: one should be best route out of your community and the other should be the next best route. If one route is blocked, you can take the other. Keep a map of both routes in your disaster prep kit. 
  • Identify meet-up locations for your family and friends. One should be nearby your home and one should be far away in case you need to leave town. Keep the addresses of both locations and directions to each one in your disaster prep kit.
