Emergency Planning

In preparation for a weather-related emergency, take time now to review your Personal Storm Emergency Plan and make sure to do the following:
  • Have an Emergency GO Kit (everything you need if you have to leave your house).
  • Establish a Family Communication Plan (how you will communicate with your family during and after the event).
  • Know your surroundings and take protective action now (e.g, is your property flood prone?)
  • If you have a generator, be sure it has been installed by a qualified electrician. You must have a transfer switch installed to prevent dangerous electricity from injuring utility crews as they repair damaged lines
