What steps can I take to prepare for natural disasters and other emergencies?

Text Size:

Plan ahead for power outages, snow storms, or other disasters by keeping at least a three-day supply of nonperishable food — and a manual can opener — in your home. Pick foods that require no cooking or preparation in case you cannot heat foods. In your workplace, find a place to store a gallon of water, some glucose tablets, and some shelf-stable snacks in case you get stuck there overnight. And if you typically wear dress shoes at work, keep a pair of sneakers there in case you have to evacuate the building.
