Remaining Safe After the Storm

  • If power is lost, refrigerated foods will stay cold for about 4 hours. When in doubt, throw it out
  • Avoid opening the refrigerator and freezer unnecessarily
  • If the water in your area is not safe to drink, boiling the water is the best ways to make it safer. Bring water to a rolling boil for one minute
  • Avoid flooded roads and bridges
  • Keep away from dangling or downed power lines and report them to the power company
  • Beware of fallen objects
  • Don't use a generator inside the home
  • If evacuated return home only when officials say it is safe
  • Continue to stay informed!
