Water will be needed for drinking, cooking and bathing. Store enough bottled water for all members of your family and pets before pending storms or emergencies. Clean water that could be used for bathing and washing dishes is in your water heater if needed.
During a storm, phone and electrical lines go down. Dangerous weather conditions prevent emergency vehicles from responding to emergency situations. Preparing yourself and your family with CPR and First Aid training can save the life of a loved one.

When you learn of a pending weather condition or emergency that may leave your home without power, buy and/or make as much ice as you can as early as possible. Use the ice in your freezer to keep perishables fresh and edible. Do not open the freezer until you absolutely have to in order to maintain proper temperature.
Stock up on personal care and cleaning items. Check your items regularly to make sure you have extra. Do not forget disposable plates, cups, utensils, paper towels and toilet paper. Insect repellent and sunscreen should be included. Remember! Those items you use everyday in normal conditions will still be needed in emergency situations.
