Winter brings beautiful snowy landscapes, but also the possibility of severe weather and power outages. Prepare in advance by having a cell phone and keeping it charged at all times.
Sign up for Emergency Notifications. Talk with your neighbors – do you need a neighbor to check on you? Do you know of someone who you could check on? Make sure family and friends’ contact information is written near your phone. Have a flashlight, lantern or headlamp ready. Set up an emergency kit with extra non-perishable food, water, snack bars, medications, pet food (if applicable). Check your smoke/CO detectors, add fresh batteries.
