Here’s how homeowners can weather a storm!
Have a three-day supply of food, water, and any essential medications for every member of their family, including pets.
- A first aid kit should be ready and available.
- Have an emergency radio and a phone charger, and also remember to fill up gas tanks in their automobiles in the event they have to leave their homes
- Don’t forget to have paper copies of important medication lists and medical records, as well as pertinent financial and personal information like birth certificates and emergency contact information.
- Make sure to have changes of underwear, comfortable shoes and clean wool socks.
And of course, make sure you generator is up and running (test weekly for automatic and monthly for
Portable). Call Lucci Electric to service it twice a year!
DON’T LET THE WEATHER RUN YOUR LIFE!
When Mother Nature is in command of the weather, there is little you can do to control it. Yet, you can control staying ahead of the storm season by preparing for the unexpected.
Every year, severe weather runs the risk of leaving up to millions of people without power for extended lengths of time. Some of the worst storms have eliminated access to power in certain areas from hours up to weeks. Are you prepared?

Winter is almost behind us and spring is on the way but that also means the National Hurricane Center has made their official predictions for 2018.
Our weather patterns are not predictable. Winter roared into March here in the Northeast and we even had measurable snow in April.
2017 roared to life in September and reminded everyone how powerful and destructive these monster storms can be.
The Atlantic hurricane season lasts from June through November. Forecasters expect a slightly above-average season, with 14 named storms. Seven of those are expected to become hurricanes and three are expected to be major hurricanes.
This near-record warmth contributed to the surge in activity in 2017, especially in terms of major hurricanes.
While the western tropical Atlantic is currently warmer than average, other portions, including the eastern tropical Atlantic and the north Atlantic, are cooler than average. The majority of storms occur between mid-August and mid-October.
Be prepared; an automatic standby generator or portable generator for comforts during power outages is a necessity and no longer a luxury.
