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
- Battery-operated or hand-crank radio
- Extra batteries
