Residents Reminded To Always Be Prepared For Extreme Weather

Monday, December 22, 2008 - In light of strong winds overnight and today, residents are reminded of the importance of being prepared for extreme weather events.

Build a portable kit that contains enough for 3 days and keep it in an easy to carry bag or container for transport in case of evacuation. Your kit should include water, food, first aid supplies, a change of clothing, blanket or sleeping bag, emergency tools (flashlights, radio, batteries) and special items for infants, elderly or the disabled.
