TORNADO SHELTER Emergency Weather Safety Sign

31Xegdnakvl. Aa280

We love a sign you can purchase and then put it through a tornado yourself! Made of thick aluminum and tough vinyl lettering and graphics, this sign is 12in. wide and 18in. tall - the same size as official signs. Comes with two holes pre-punched for easy mounting, corners are rounded so when it flies through the air it may be a bit easier on things it connects with. :-)

All Weather Emergency Poncho

411Zmetz22L. Aa280

Having just spent the the early part of the summer fishing with my dad in Canada, we got hit on the St. John river with more than just fishing - a giant thunderstorm with really high winds. Boating and wind and rain just don't mix that well, and thankfully we had a set of ponchos to make it through the roughest heavy rain. You'll need to have a good poncho you can sit on and wrap around you so the wind won't take it, but if you are able to sit or just wait it out with the poncho wrapped around you, you should be fine.

Midland WR-100C Weather All Hazards and Civil Emergency Alert Monitor

41Eh8Gs7Bdl. Aa280

This is currently the top selling weather radio just about anywhere online and offline. Why? It really has the features you need for weather and alerts specific to your area.The Midland WR-100C Weather All Hazards and Civil Emergency Alert Monitor has S.A.M.E. area technology that allows for alerts specific to your area so you won't be listening to something that doesn't affect you or you miss something that does. The single-speaker radio offers 25 programmable county codes, access to 7 NOAA weather channels, time/date and alarm functions, and a choice of voice, siren, or tone alert.

In the event of special warning broadcasts, the monitor is automatically activated along with a loud tone, an LED light and an alert message on its 8-character LCD. Emergency weather bulletins include alerts about tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, ice/snow storms, and other severe weather. Other emergencies might include Amber alerts, explosions, fires, or hazardous chemical spills.

The radio uses the supplied AC power adapter or 3 AA backup batteries (not included). Batteries should give you approximately 24 hours of continuous operation; the clock will run for at least 10 days on batteries when the monitor is turned off (using the monitor on/off control).

How to Be Prepared for a Hurricane

R U Prepared2

"Preventing the loss of life and minimizing the damage to property
from hurricanes are responsibilities that are shared by all."

We just found this rather comprehensive guide on how to get prepared for hurricane season and other bad weather situations. The crux of any plan is actually having one and getting the supplies to fuel it. We really like the detailed tips on evacuation and other areas like pets. You can read the full article at Be Prepared or keep reading for our highlights. We have just about everything below prepared in our house, sans a place to go. I'm going to be checking into what options are available for shelters in the Boston area.

Disaster Prevention should include:

  1. Developing a Family Plan
  2. Creating a Disaster Supply Kit
  3. Having a Place to Go
  4. Securing your Home
  5. Having a Pet Plan
