Preparing For Unexpected Power Outages
As storms continue to hit our beautiful, snow-covered state, it is important that you take a moment to prepare ahead of time for unexpected power outages. Homeowners along the East Coast simply cannot afford to neglect the importance of preventative action. Gathered are some helpful tips for storms and power outage safety:
- Due to all the storms New York has been faced with lately, your essentials may be running dry. Make sure to stock up on essentials and refill your emergency supply kit if necessary.
- Make sure that you have several flashlights scattered throughout your home with backup batteries attached to the wands.
- If you do not already have one in your emergency preparedness kit, it is time to purchase a battery-operated radio. This will allow you to remain up-to-date on vital information during a storm or power outage.
- Chances are, you depend on your cellular devices heavily. Therefore, it is important that you have extra chargers, especially a car charger. This will allow you to charge your phone in your car during a power outage.
