Prepare for Winter Weather Emergencies
Imagine living without heat, power or communication during the coldest days of the year. During a winter weather emergency, not only can these conditions be unpleasant, but dangerous too. Making a plan, winterizing your home and stocking up on supplies are all essential steps to prepare for winter emergencies.
Use this crucial stay-safe checklist now to help your household prepare for blistering conditions all winter long:
Make a Plan
Storm heading your way? Follow the news closely so you can make last minute preparations before the weather turns dangerous. As part of this process, create an emergency plan and review it with your family. The plan should also address specific scenarios, such as what to do if someone is separated from the group and is unable to call for help.
Ensuring that your home is protected from the elements can turn a bad situation into a life-saving scenario. Install storm windows and apply weather-stripping to help insulate your home. In the event the heat goes out, you’ll be trapping warm air in and keeping cold air out. And remember — you can never have too many blankets and warm clothes.
Pack an Emergency Kit
When extreme weather hits, it’s important to have essential supplies within an arm’s reach. Be sure that you have a well-stocked, up-to-date first aid kit and an extra supply of all family members’ prescription medications.
Your kit should also include several gallons of clean water, as well as enough non-perishable food to last three days, including formula for young children. Pick items that don’t require cooking or preparation. The Federal Emergency Management Agency recommends replacing these stores every six months.
Lastly, make sure you have a battery-operated radio and plenty of batteries on hand.
Unless you enjoy treacherous roads, panicked crowds and long lines, don’t wait until that big storm comes your way to start preparing. For a safe and happy winter season, follow these steps to ensure your family is ready for any winter weather emergency that comes your way.
