Are you prepared for an emergency. We all hope that we never have to leave our homes or lose power etc. Maybe you’ll need to evacuate due to weather or some other emergency. This is a good time to plan ahead and create a personalized emergency kit for yourself and your family. Here are some supplies that you might include.
Have supplies. Consider putting an emergency kit together including food and bottled water, flash drive/copies of critical documents, first aid kit with spare medications, portable USB charger/solar charger and cords, small hand-crank flashlight, hand-crank emergency radio, spare set of clothes and warm gloves/hat, and spare keys/key cards and printed security codes.
If you’re going out of town, please provide us with emergency contact information.As temperatures drop this winter, the American Red Cross offers this advice to stay safe during the cold weather.
Layer up! Wear layers of lightweight clothing to stay warm. Gloves and a hat will help
prevent losing your body heat.Don’t forget your furry friends. Bring pets indoors. If they can’t stay inside, make sure they have enough shelter to keep warm and that they can get to unfrozen water.
