Blizzard Safety Tips

The Blizzard of ’13 is bearing down on us, Johnson & Rohan Insurance offers some safety tips:

  • Check your supplies.
  • Make sure you have a snow shovel and ice melt to keep walkways clear and safe.
  • Check that you have sufficient heating fuel for your home and fuel for your generator, if you have one.
  • If you will be using a fireplace or wood-burning stove, you should have a good supply of dry, seasoned wood.
  • Have warm clothing and blankets on hand and stock non-perishable food items and necessary medications to last you and your family several days.
  • Get ready for a power outage. Turn your heat up now and close off any rooms that are not in use.
  • Check pipe insulation and allow water to run at a trickle to prevent pipes from freezing.
  • Charge your battery-powered electronic and communications devices.
  • Get out your flashlights, batteries, first aid kit and other emergency supplies.
  • Don’t drive or go out unless absolutely necessary.
  • Test all of your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to ensure they work properly.
  • Do not let candles burn unattended, and keep them away from combustibles.
  • Check on your elderly or disabled neighbors, friends and families.
  • Enjoy your family! Sometimes storms render the best family time memories.

Johnson & Rohan Insurance hopes everyone has a warm and safe Blizzard of ’13.
