  • Have extra batteries for flashlights and radios
  • Watch out for falling trees and power lines
  • Unplug electronics
  • Have back up chargers
  • Eat dairy foods first so they don’t go bad and get you food poisoning

  • Be careful using heating and generators
  • Understand generators safety

Make plans with your family:

  • Plan a shelter to go to and evacuation route
  • Make meal plans
  • Talk with family about moving locations if you live near trees and power lines
  • Figure out communication plan (example: walkie-talkies)
  • Don’t forget the needs of pets

Fun things to do inside:

  • Play board games
  • Sleep

    Good information and you covered a lot of ground. Maybe if you included some personal information (what you may have done with your family) to show how your ideas worked? Great idea giving out the website where we can go to check food items!!
