- As soon as people receive reports of an incoming blizzard, they should prepare all their lanterns and rechargeable lamps. It’s highly recommended that every household have a wind-up lamp.
- People should also have transistor radios ready so even with the electricity cut off, they can still gather the latest developments from the storm.
- Communication devices such as phones and walk-talkies should be charged so people can talk to their loved ones and see how they’re doing. It’ll also come in very handy when people experience an emergency and need help themselves.
- Having the home equipped with a freeze alarm can be useful during the winter months. If a person is on their way home and they get notified through the app that their house has lost power and there’s a sudden drop in temperature, they may look for other options to kill time.
