Emergencies in Wisconsin and Illinois have the ability to catch you off guard if you’re not prepared. Though it may not seem drastic at first, in a matter of minutes a thunderstorm could spiral into a storm that can cause significant damage to your home. Being prepared to weather out a storm will save you time and expense because you’ll be ready to face possible power outages and water shortages. It’s also a good idea to make a “What to do in an emergency” checklist and review it with your family.
Being prepared for an emergency starts with collecting the right supplies. Having jugged water and a canned goods collection in your basement pantry will take the stress out of finding food in the event of a storm. Freeze-dried or canned foods will last months or even years depending on the product. Also, make sure you have extra pet food or medicine stored away in case you are unable to drive to a store for a day or two.
