Before the storm preparation

Posted: Updated:

Now that you know the storm is well on its way, here are a few last minute preparations because you need to be self sufficient for at least 72 hours:

  • Keep an emergency kit in the car with water, snacks, a first aid kit, flashlight, extra hats, socks, and blankets.

  • Turn your refrigerator and freezer to their coldest settings. They will stay cooler longer if there is a power outage.

  • Eat perishable foods first, conserving what is canned for the long haul.

  • Fill clean, empty bottles and jugs with drinking water to have on hand. It never hurts to have extras to refill toilets.

  • Devise a family communication plan. Decide how you will contact each other during the storm, how you will get back together, and what you will do in case there is an emergency.
