Top 3 Ways To Prepare For A Storm

Storm season is in sight and what better way to be prepared than going over a checklist?  Even with the best of preparations, outages can occur,
especially as a result of severe weather.

Here’s what you can do to prepare before storms hit:

  1. Assemble an emergency “storm kit.” Include a battery powered radio or television, flashlight, a first-aid kit,extra batteries, special needs items such as medicines, an insulated cooler and a list of important and emergency phone numbers.
  2. Keep at least a three-day supply of nonperishable foods and bottled water and have a hand-operated can opener available.
  3. Have a telephone with a cord or cell phone to use as a backup. Cordless telephones require electricity to operate, and won’t work if there is an outage.
