What to bring if working during the hurricane?

  1. In response to Hurricane Irma. I have a friend in ft Lauderdale who will be on "team a." He will be working during the hurricane. It's his first and I have never worked a hurricane response. He wants to know what items should he bring with him. I told him the obvious I could think of: scrubs, air mattress, toiletries, sheets, towels, snacks, nursing supplies. I tried googling a checklist but no luck. Any suggestions would me appreciated

    Pillow, snacks and drinks, changes of clothes for several days, something to sleep in that you don't mind being seen in (old scrubs are good) any meds you require. A sleep mask and ear plugs or headphones are good.
    Whether you are at work or not take out a couple hundred in cash. ATMs will not be working and neither will card readers if you are lucky enough to find any businesses open after the storm. Will help if you need to leave the area afterwards. Make sure you have a full tank of gas beforehand.
