  • If the power goes out immediately shut off your stove and fans as the power may come back on while you are away
  • Have flashlights, battery operated radio, extra batteries, blankets, first aid kit.
  • Have bottled water—The American Red Cross recommends one gallon of water per person per day.
  • Stock up on nonperishable food, medicine and any pet care items in case the power goes out or roads are blocked.
  • Keep extra cash on hand since an electrical power outage may prevent you from withdrawing money from ATM's or banks.
  • Turn your refrigerator to the coldest setting
    • If the power goes out, this will keep food fresher longer.
    • If you leave the refrigerator closed, most food will stay frozen or fresh for up to 12 hours.
  • Phone charger
  • Fill your gas tank if you own a car.

Designate Shelter

  • Most importantly, know where to seek shelter in the event of severe weather: tornado, hurricane or flood warnings.
  • Stay indoors away from glass doors and windows. Stay in a windowless room on the lowest level that is not likely to flood.

Emergency Contacts

  • Make sure administration has updated emergency contacts.
