Weather can be unpredictable, and we need to keep ourselves and loved ones safe during a bad storm. Here are some basic things you can do to prepare your home for loss of power any time of year:
Things to do before a power outage
- Be prepared for injuries. You should have an emergency kit at your home that’s fully stocked with bandages in various sizes, sterile dressings and gloves, hand sanitizer and antibiotic towelettes, a thermometer, pain medicines, tweezers, and scissors. Make sure you purchase or build your own first aid kit that is large enough for your family.
- Make sure your generator is up and running. Review generator safety tips before using your generator for the first time
