What’s your plan? Prepare now for wintery weather


S


evere wind, heavy snow and ice can leave your home temporarily without power. Kiamichi Electric Cooperative encourages you to be prepared if a


winter storm knocks out power to your home.


1. Create a weather emergency plan for your family. Jot down important phone numbers for your electric cooperative, the local pharmacy, doctor, neighbors and family members. Figure out how to get out of your house in case the front and back doors are blocked by fallen limbs or debris. Agree on a place where everyone in your household will meet if you can’t stay at home.


2. Fill a backpack or a cooler with a couple of days’ worth of food and water. Toss in a  cash and your medicine. You can take that with you to a shelter, a hotel or a friend’s house, if you plan to vacate your home until power is restored.

are appreciated.
