Make a habit of tuning in to daily weather forecasts and be aware of changing conditions.
Find out where the main utility switches are in your home and assign someone to turn them off in an emergency situation.
Have a flashlight and extra batteries nearby for power outages. Keep extra blankets available in case the heat goes out.
Refill medication renewals promptly to ensure you have adequate supplies on hand.
Be sure you have an emergency back-up source/supply for any medical equipment requiring electricity.
