Prepare for Power & Heat Outage

Winter storms can bring not only large amounts of snow, but also extreme cold, high winds, freezing rain and ice. They can cause downed trees, make roads or walkways incredibly dangerous, and cause power outages that can last for several days. Public transportation can be affected and schools and childcare facilities might be closed. On top of all this, winter storms increase the risks of car accidents, hypothermia, frostbite, carbon monoxide poisonings and heart attacks. It’s important to know how to keep yourself, your family and your home safe. Here are some steps you can take to prepare yourself before that brutal storm hits.
