Winter is Here! Part 3 of 5: Be Prepared for Winter Emergencies

This time of year is a special one for families and friends. Whether for a walk through the snow or cuddling up in front of the fire, once thing is for certain, winter is a time for togetherness. Sadly, it can also be a time for winter emergencies. By taking proactive measures now, you can help insure this winter to be a safe one. The CDC advises us to be prepared for weather-related emergencies, including power outages. Continue reading to find out how:

  • Purchase a generator or have an alternate safe house to go to if necessary
  • Have extra warm clothes and blankets available.
  • Cuddle!
  • Stock food that needs no cooking or refrigeration and water stored in clean containers.
  • Stock a 3 day water supply (one gallon per day per person and pet).
  • Stock food for pets.
  • Don’t open your refrigerator or freezer unless absolutely necessary.
  • Only flush if necessary.
  • Ensure that your cell phone is fully charged.
  • Disconnect
  • When planning travel, be aware of current and forecast weather conditions.

Keep an up-to-date emergency kit, including:

  • Battery-operated devices, such as a flashlight, a NOAA Weather Radio, and lamps.
