It’s rather ironic that one of the largest storms of the winter is bowling through the United States during National Storm Preparedness week! If the coincidence does nothing else, let it get you thinking about what you should do to keep your family safe in the event of a major weather event, power failure or even an earthquake.

Research, and Make a Plan
First, start at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s website: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/com/weatherreadynation/
Here, you’ll find all kinds of material that will help you draw up a plan, develop an emergency kit and be prepared.

Related agencies also have good preparation ideas. Collect and tailor to your needs, so you’ll always be ready!

The Red Cross makes recommendations of what’s needed per day per person, so you know what to buy, if needed.
