Emergency Preparedness Tips:

 

GOAL FOR FEBRUARY:  Have 72 hours (3 days) worth of water stored for your household.

Whether you get water from a municipal water system or your home has a private well, your water supply depends on having power to operate the system.  During a power outage-or any disaster that can cause a power outage, such as high winds, ice storm, or flood-you may find yourself without drinkable water.

Tasks:

Below is a list of things that you can do to achieve your goal this month. Choose at least one, and complete it.

  • Purchase and store a 72-hour supply of commercially bottled water (or more - up to two weeks).
  • Bottle a 72-hour supply of water at home.
  • Learn how to provide a safe supply of drinking water for your household in a disaster.

Make a Plan: Plan what to do if you have to evacuate.

  • Choose two emergency meeting places.
  • Plan ahead for pets.
  • Take steps now to prevent damage to your home in a disaster.  Plan for tornado, flood and wildfire.
  • Know the probable disasters in your area.   
  • Talk to your family about being ready for an emergency.
