WEATHER IS OFTEN UNPREDICTABLELiving with unpredictable weather isnt a unique aspect of living in Northern New York, but this may be the first time you and yourFamily needs to prepare for the loss of power, flooding or storms accompanied by colder temperatures. It cannot be stressedenough how important it is to BE ACTIVELY PREPARED for whatever mother nature may throw in our direction.First and foremost keep your eyes and ears open! BE INFORMED! Listen to news reports, keep an eye on our Facebook, check your email often and keep in contact with your chain of command when bad weatheris in the forecast. These will be the main media venues used to push out information that will be important to you should there be aneed to evacuate, shelter in place or be reminded about important safety measures like avoiding downed power lines. When thepower goes out is too late to be looking for information!BUILD A KIT:When disaster strikes, emergency responders address the most critical needs and may not be able to get to an area until it is deemedsafe. While they work on behalf of the entire community, consider it YOUR responsibility to ensure your Familys well-being duringtimes of crisis. Emergency kits are essential tools for meeting that challenge.To prepare your Family for an emergency, establish emergency kits that include enough supplies to meet your essential needs for atleast three days. Not sure what you should have in that kit? Follow this link for a comprehensive list of suggestions: A PLAN:Gather input from all members of your Family to consider all possibilities and make them more likely to remember important stepswhen an emergency happens. Choose a contact person, a Family member or friend living somewhere else whom you can all contactin the case of an event. Plan for all hazards that could affect your Family, considering potential hazards and weather patterns inyour region. Think through each possible emergency situation, and determine how your Family should respond. Think about all theplaces you and your Family may be throughout the day, such as home, office, school and in transit. Establish meeting places anddiscuss situations to use them. By establishing and practicing a Family emergency plan, you and your Family are more likely to findeach other quickly and help one another get through the emergency situation safely and with less worry.
