Spring Storm Precaution Tips

April 18, 2013

Spring weather will eventually hit the metro area–and be here to stay–so now is a great time to review your emergency disaster plan and locate/restock items in the emergency safety kit.

At a minimum, basics in your safety kit should include: water, food, batteries, flashlights, radio/weather radio, first aid kit, medications, phone chargers, and blankets. Additionally, copies of important paperwork are recommended to be put in water proof containers for reference. A list of recommended safety kit items can be found at: http://www.redcross.org/prepare/location/home-family/get-kit.

Take time now to get prepared!
