Though most people plan for weather-related emergencies only during the winter, extreme weather can happen in any season at any time. Preparing your home for a variety of unexpected weather conditions can be a daunting task though, which is why JK Mechanical developed an “Extreme Weather Emergency Essentials” infographic. The guide covers preparation practices for almost any extreme weather condition to ensure you always have the supplies you need no matter the situation.
Whether there’s a possibility of heat waves, wildfires, drought, flooding, earthquakes, tornadoes, or snowstorms, the best way to prepare is to have a generator on standby. Designed to work within seconds of power loss, generators keep your home running in emergency situations, making sure food stays fresh, sump pumps stay on, and most importantly, providing peace of mind 24/7.
The other necessity when preparing for any extreme weather is an adequate food and water supply. It’s recommended to have a three day supply of both food and water for each household member, making sure the food is easy to prepare and non-perishable.
