Have a supply of bottled water to last a week for your family and also for your pets.
Keep a supply of non-perishable food that does not require refrigeration or cooking.
Never let your car’s gas tank go below a half tank. You never know where you may have to drive to and gas may not be available if there is no power to pump the gas. You can also charge your cell phone in your car too.
Be sure to have some cash on hand in small bills since banks could be closed and ATM’s and credit card machines may not be working.
Know how to turn off the gas valve for your house, including having the necessary tools. Make sure that electronics and appliances are surge protected in the event the power goes out so there is no damage when the power is turned back on.
Have more than one flashlight with extra batteries. Also have some rechargeable batteries to charge your cell phone too.
