This time of the year, dangerous conditions could confine families to their homes for days at a time. MAKE SURE TO PLAN AND PREPARE your home for the winter months. 

Indiana winters include everything from heavy snows, to freezing rain, to ice storms — sometimes all in one day. All of those forms of winter weather can create electrical hazards.

To better prepare for a power outage, your electric co-op recommends members keep a storm preparedness kit fully stocked. The basic supplies in this kit should include: 

  • Bottled water
  • Non-perishable food 
  • Emergency blankets
  • First aid kit/medicine
  • Flashlight
  • Battery-operated or hand-crank radio
  • Extra batteries
  • Toiletries
