Get Ready for Severe Fall Weather

As the leaves begin to fall, take a fresh look at your emergency preparations. This season is loved for its crisp breezes and colorful leaves, but it is also notorious for strong winds, heavy rain and even tornadoes. Since severe weather can occur quickly with little to no warning, it is important to take time now to prepare.

  • Trim away dead or weak tree branches from around your home
  • Be weather-aware; be alert to changing conditions so you can take proper action
  • Know where you will take cover in an emergency
