STORM SAFETY TIPS
Avoid travel if possible
If you must travel, slow down, use your headlights and windshield wipers, and maintain a distance of several car lengths between your car and other vehicles. NEVER drive into standing or moving bodies of water.
Prepare for power outages
Keep a battery-operated flashlight and radio within easy reach. Ensure those items are always accessible and that your batteries are fresh. Listen for updates on storm conditions and power outages.
Keep mobile and satellite phones fully charged
Charge backup batteries as well.
Use LED candles
Wax candles are not recommended.
Store water-filled plastic containers in your freezer
You can use them as blocks of ice to prevent food from spoiling.
CARBON MONOXIDE KILLS
NEVER use a generator, grill, camp stove or other gasoline, propane, natural gas or charcoal-burning devices inside a home, garage, basement, crawlspace or any partially enclosed area. Locate unit away from doors, windows, and vents that could allow carbon monoxide to come indoors.
