Citizen Preparedness

Pre-planning and being prepared in the event of an emergency is important for every citizen.  A serious weather event, such as a severe thunderstorm or an ice storm could result in power outages.  Each household should be prepared to be self-sufficient for 72 hours.

Things to consider . . . a power outage means

• No cordless phones
• No ATM machines
• No gasoline pumps
• No water pumps (especially if using well water)
• No power for home health care equipment
