How to Prepare for a Power Outage Caused by a Storm?

Keep a flashlight in an easy-to-reach location. Keep this flashlight stocked with fresh batteries. Avoid using candles for light.

Stock up an emergency supply kit that is also in an easy-to-reach location. This should contain your family’s medications, a first aid kit, supplies for pets, blankets, fresh water, and non-perishable snacks.

Keep your refrigerator and freezer shut to preserve food for a longer period of time. Only open if absolutely necessary.

Have a hand-cranked radio on hand to listen out for updates on the storm.

Always keep your cellphone charged so you’re able to make calls in the event of an emergency.

Turn off or disconnect appliances and other equipment in case of a momentary power surge that can damage computers and other devices. We also recommend using a surge protector to safeguard electronics.
