Be prepared


Learn how to prepare for emergencies to safeguard yourself and your family.

Tips


  • Be sure you have a disaster kit, including flashlights with extra batteries.
  • Stay away from downed power lines and sagging trees with broken limbs.
  • Never use gas ovens, gas ranges, barbecues, or propane heaters for indoor heating. Doing so can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning. These can also increase the risk of fire.
  • Generators should only be operated outdoors, and far from open windows and vents.
  • Listen to your portable weather radio, battery-operated radio, or television for current information.
