How to Prepare for Severe Weather

The key to preparing for any type of severe weather is to prepare early. You wouldn’t want to be putting up hurricane shutters in driving wind and rain, right?

In some parts of the country, the main severe weather threat is tornadoes. Knowing how to prepare for a tornado is important to keeping you and your family safe. If you own a business, our Severe Weather Safety Tips for Businesses guide shows you steps to take to keep your staff and customers safe.

If snow is your main severe weather threat, stock up on all the supplies you’ll need including snow shovels, salt for the sidewalks, generators, heaters and even blankets. Learn how to prepare for a blizzard and the extreme cold and power outages that often accompany them.
