Storm preparation in Mid Mo

In Mid Mo it is important to be prepared for whatever storm can come. For us that could be, extreme heat all the way to extreme cold. In this season we are focused on the heat. Here are some best practices to stay safe once a storm starts. Heat is the number one weather related killer

  • Stay hydrated and keep a supply of water
  • Stay indoors with ac as much as possible and limit outdoor activities
  • Make sure that if your home has window units they are tightly fitted and secure
  • Be aware that people living in urban areas may be at greater risk from the effects of a prolonged heat wave than are people living in rural areas
  • Pay close attention to babies, toddlers, pregnant and nursing mothers, adults 65 years and older as well as people with underlying conditions
  • Be prepared to lose power, once a storm is underway it isn’t safe to go out for what you need

Plan for your household so that everyone knows it. This will help keep your family safe in an emergency. Check on family, friends and neighbors who do not have air conditioning, who spend much of their time alone or who are more likely to be affected by the heat

While closely monitoring the water levels to ensure there is enough equipment and we do everything we can to save the materials that can be saved.
