Heavy snow and violent winds break branches, uproot trees, and cause power outages.  Here are some items to put in an emergency kit so you are ready:

  • Flashlights
  • Radio for latest weather updates
  • Batteries
  • First Aid Kit
  • Blankets and Coats
  • Water

Here are some dos and don'ts from Property/Casualty 360:

  • Turn off and disconnect electronic appliances to avoid damage from power surges

 Don't

  • Run generators inside your home or in a closed garage
  • Consume food that hasn't been properly preserved
  • Burn charcoal or propane indoors
