Are you prepared to shelter in place?
We are hoping/planning that you can shelter in place (not leaving your home).
Do you have a way to keep your family warm? Have you thought of an other heat source? A way to cook your food. Has anyone checked out any of the solor heat, cooking and chargers?
Basic medical supplies and how to use them.
Make sure you have cash on hand, banks and ATMs may be closed or not working.
Have a plan to contact and know the #'s of out of state family and friends. Many times the local phones are down but long distance still work. You may want to think of having an other way to contact locals. Remember cell phones will most likely not work.
City water and sewage will not work when the power is down. Have a plan of what your going to do for water and if the sewage starts to back up, what can you do.
Try to keep your supplies together so you know where to find them when you need them. Do not keep batteries in flashlights etc. Make sure you have lots of everything.
Have a plan of what you need if you have to leave. Remember if you have babies, sick members, elderly. Have items ready and have Grab and Go bags packed and ready.
Remember to restock your supplies when the event is over so your ready for next time. Remember to look online and get much more info. Stay safe out there!
