Sheltering in Place

If you choose to shelter in place or are otherwise unable to evacuate during an emergency or extreme weather, you’ll need to make some advance preparations for your home and ensure that you have enough supplies on hand to deal with possible utility outages, restricted mobility and a disruption of the infrastructure and supply chains that support grocery stores and more. The websites below provide some useful information to consider when preparing your home for sheltering in place.
