Safety in Inclement Weather

We’ve been experiencing some pretty terrible weather recently! From across the country, we’ve seen everything from thunderstorms to snow storms… with a little bit of everything in between. While Houston was pounded with rain today, you East Coasters better watch outthe storm’s headed your way next!

All of the inclement weather got us thinking that now would be a perfect time to remind everyone to take precautions when facing bad weather.

First, check out our post about power outages as this weather we’re experiencing is their leading cause. As with hurricanes, advance preparation is essential.

Second, memorize these numbers! Should you lose power, here is a list of contacts you should have on hand. Write them down or program them into your cell phone as computer and/or landline access may be difficult when you lose power.
