As the winter weather season approaches, I want to remind members of our community about the power of preparation. While you don’t have to achieve a “doomsday prepper” level of preparedness, there are several practical steps you can take to keep yourself and your family safe. During a prolonged power outage or other emergencies, this means having enough food, water and supplies to last at least a few days.
Even at a modest level, preparation can help reduce stress, anxiety and lessen the impact of an emergency event. We recommend starting with the basics.
