Before the storm:

  • Have a portable radio, TV or NOAA Weather Radio on hand to monitor official
    weather forecasts and other important information for your area.

  • Families who have special medical needs or elderly members should closely monitor
    weather forecasts and make plans for potential alternate arrangements should an
    extended outage occur.

  • Have a plan to move yourself and your family - especially those with special needs
    - to an alternate location in case you have to evacuate or experience an extended power outage.

  • Keep a supply of water and nonperishable food items on hand.

  • Ensure first aid supplies and all medicines are readily available.

  • Make sure flashlights are readily available and working and that a supply of extra batteries is on hand.

  • Consider the need for specialty items such as prescription medication, baby food,
    additional warm clothing and a safe heat source. 

 

  • Homeowners who depend on well water should draw an emergency water supply
    in case power to their electric water pumps is interrupted.

 

  • If you have an emergency heating or power source, learn how to use it properly. 

 

  • Have at least one traditional analog phone in your home that does not require electricity to operate. Cordless phones and phones with built-in answering machines will not operate during a power outage.
