Prepare For An Outage

  1. Before an Outage
  2. During an Outage
  3. After an Outage

Outages may not always be predictable, but when a large storm is on its way, there are a few things that are important to do.

  1. If you or someone in your household has a medical condition which requires powered equipment, be sure to have a plan to transport them to a facility that can help them.
  2. Charge up all of your electronic devices and any battery packs that you may have.
  3. Put together a storm readiness kit.
    • This may include the following: flashlight, batteries, drinking water, canned food, first aid kit, lighter or matches, a battery powered portable radio, and any other supplies which may be needed in the event that your home or business is without power or clean water for an extended period of time.
    • In extreme cases where you may have to leave your home, you should prepare additional supplies to bring with you.
  4. Secure any objects outside that may be blown away by strong winds. This may include bringing those objects inside.
  5. Keep an eye on the weather and local news stations for updates and additional advice on how to prepare for the specific storm.
