Hurricane Prep Packs 2010

The preparedness packs include medicines and supplies to treat a variety of conditions, from trauma injuries to chronic conditions. Each year, experience and feedback from partners is used to improve the contents and packaging of the pack.
The versatile materials in the hurricane packs can also be life-saving during other types of emergencies, as demonstrated during the Haiti Cholera Outbreak.
Direct Relief is able to supply these preparedness materials only with the generous donations of several pharmaceutical and medical material corporations.
Any contents remaining after the hurricane season, ending November 30, are absorbed into clinic inventories to assure that the resources are used and benefit their uninsured patient populations.
