Anchorage Week 4 Focus is Power Outage/Cold Weather Emergency
Be prepared for winter storms and extreme cold by having a supply kit at home, in case you can’t get to the store for food.
Make sure you have an emergency kit in your car with survival supplies and items to provide traction if you become stuck, or to stop to help someone else.
Keep a supply kit at work also, in case the weather turns bad while you are there and you cannot leave.
Discuss with your loved ones what to do if they become stuck away from home and cannot communicate with you. Ensure everyone knows what to do and how to stay healthy in extreme cold (or if the power goes out for an extended period of time). Don’t forget to check on your neighbors also!
Here are some websites with great information on being prepared for extreme winter weather.
