Personal Preparedness

 

How To Be Prepared

Personal Preparations in case of emergency start at home with a careful evaluation of your living environment and supplies in case of emergency.  Look around your home and evaluate:

  • Could I survive the next ice storm?
  • Do I have extra batteries or flashlights?
  • Do I need a generator?
  • What is my evacuation plan, where will meet?
  • How can I educate my children?
