What’s Cooler Than Being Cool?

We all remember the winter freeze from last year that held most Texans hostage for a couple of weeks with no water, electricity or heat sources. As we tread through this winter season, we must reiterate the importance of being prepared for the unexpected. Below is a simple checklist of things to remember to stay safe and ready.
Stock up on essentials:
Multiple flashlights and batteries. Avoid using candles, which are a fire hazard.
Bottled water. Keep one gallon of bottled water per person per day for drinking. Plan for seven days. Also, have extra bottles for washing dishes and bathing if you can.
Nonperishable food and a manual can opener. Food options include canned meats, soups, vegetables and fruits; peanut and other nut butters; and pantry snacks such as granola bars and crackers.
First aid kit with bandages, alcohol wipes, antibiotic cream, burn cream, ankle wraps, thermometer, fever reducer/pain reliever, and an antihistamine like Benadryl.
Warm clothing and blankets. Layers are your friends to keep warm.
We hope these tips help you and your family stay warm, safe and prepared.
