Emergencies and natural disasters cannot always be prevented but we can be prepared and help minimize or avoid the effects of such events. It is important to be prepared in case of an emergency that creates an extended service outage. Creating an Emergency Plan and making sure all members of your family know how to follow it, and having an emergency kit that can sustain you and your family for at least 72 hours are steps you can take to prepare for such emergencies.
