Be Prepared

As we age, we can be more vulnerable during natural disasters  like blizzards and power outages.  It is important to have a plan and be ready for an emergency.

Some tips:

Make a list of emergency contacts (hardcopy & on your cell phone).  Give someone a copy of the list and a house key.  Keep family/friends/neighbours informed if you are away.

Gather supplies such as food, water, clothing, medication, batteries, chargers, flashlights/candles etc and put in a disaster kit (remember it should be light)

If possible have a supply of extra non-perishable food supplies in the house that will last for at least 72 hours in case you can’t get out.
