Did you know that March is Severe Weather Preparation Month?
While here in New York it may still feel like winter outside and you can barely see the ground through all of the snow, trust me it won’t be long until spring arrives. And with it comes spring storms! Is your family prepared?
First things first, make sure you have designated a safe place to go to if the weather gets bad. It could be your basement, a closet in the center of the house, or a room with no windows or outside walls, like a bathroom. Make sure this space is cleared out enough that you could easily get your family inside if needed. (You don’t want to be clearing out the closet at the time of a tornado or bad storm!)
Next, put together a small emergency kit. Set it up in a backpack so it’s all in one place. What would you need if the power was out? Consider putting in flashlights, extra batteries, canned food, and plenty of water. (Don’t forget supplies for your pets too!)
Keep emergency phone numbers in your cell phone contacts, including the phone number for your insurance company! You could even save a note in your phone with your policy numbers too.
While we can’t prevent bad weather, it’s always great to be as prepared as possible. Take care of your family first and know that we’ll be there to protect your belongings.
