Know what to do, where to go, and have supplies on hand for when severe weather strikes. Not only could being prepared keep your family more comfortable should a storm cause widespread or local damage, but it could also save lives.


  1. Make sure you have a way to stay informed in case the power goes out and cell phone batteries die. A NOAA weather alert radiowith battery back-up is the perfect solution to keep you up to date on the latest storm and emergency alerts.

  2. Have an emergency plan in place.

  3. Prepare an emergency supply kit (details below).


A general list of items to have on-hand for emergency situations is below. Keep emergency supplies in the place you’ll seek shelter in case of an emergency. Store them in containers that offer protection from water, fire or other damage. Plan for enough emergency supplies to last your family at least a week if you’re without electricity, food or water.

Suggested Emergency Preparedness Supply List

  • NOAA weather alert radio with battery back-up power (such as the Midland WR120 or WR300)

  • Portable radio or TV (the WR300, ER310, and ER210 all have AM/FM radio)

  • Flashlight

  • Batteries (all sizes)

  • First aid kit

  • Bottled water

  • Non-perishable food (don’t forget a manual can opener)

  • Cell phones and chargers

  • Prescription medications

  • Important family documents like insurance information

  • Sleeping bags or warm blankets (keep your climate in mind)

  • Extra clothing and close-toed shoes

  • Personal necessities like glasses, oxygen tanks, infant formula and diapers

  • Pet food

  • Multi-purpose tool(s)

  • Matches

  • Garbage or plastic bags for tarping, makeshift rain ponchos, holding belongings, etc.


When it comes to emergency preparedness, you have the most important job. All the warnings, alerts and information in the world won’t save lives if you are not prepared. Think about what you can do to prepare for emergencies at your workplace, school and home. We encourage everyone to do their part and get ready now.
