If A Storm Hits: Be Prepared.
Storms can cause damage fast and require you and your family to seek shelter or leave your home. It is important to be prepared if this happens. Having an emergency plan as well as an emergency kit can help. Be prepared for storm damage by keeping necessary items centrally located in your home. Take the time to ensure that everyone in your family is aware of the "kit." Periodically check your kit to see that batteries operate properly. The following is a list of items that are suggested to keep on hand:
• Water (one gallon per person per day)
• Food (non-perishable 3-day supply)
• Manual can opener
•Battery operated radio, preferably a NOAA Weather Radio
• Flashlight and extra batteries
• First aid kit Whistle to signal for help
