Storm Preparation

We suggest that all CAREGivers and CNAs keep a Storm Emergency Kit in their cars.

 

This kit is to help you as well as your clients should you encounter a “surprise” emergency. We suggest the following items be included in your kit (if you have any questions about any of these, please call us):

  • Flashlight & batteries

  • Snow scraper/shovel

  • Ice melt/cat litter/sand to improve traction

  • Cell phone/charger

  • Blanket

  • Medications

  • Toiletries

  • Change of clothes

  • Boots, storm wear

  • Moist towelettes

  • Garbage bags & plastic ties

  • A whistle is also good idea to alert for help.

 

It is important to keep a near full gas tank in your vehicle due to the possibility of nearby gas stations having no power If we are expecting a weather system extending beyond 24 hours, we may request that you plan ahead for an “extended stay”.
 

Please allow time to clear your own driveway and extra travel time.

If you know you are going to be delayed, please call the office so we can alert your client.
