1. Stock up on coolers & ice; Styrofoam coolers are an inexpensive way to be prepared so that your food doesn’t perish in case you lose power. It is also a good idea to keep non-perishable items on hand and a can opener.

2. Have plenty of bottled water; about 1 gallon per person, per day.

3. Flashlights, batteries and first aid kits are important to keep handy.

4. Keep extra copies of personal documents in a ziplock bag(including birth certificates, leases/deeds, insurance policies, etc) and be sure to have your cell phones, chargers and family and emergency contact information nearby. 

Ensuring you and your family’s safety in the event of an emergency is the most important thing.  By following these simple, easy steps you can avoid a lot of frustration and headaches should you or your family ever be stuck without power.
