Master Lock shared with us a few ways to keep your home and important items safe in the event of severe weather especially if you are away from home. Severe weather can really catch you by surprise so it is nice to have some strategies in mind! Here some ideas when considering how prepared you are for stormy weather:
- Prepare ahead: Put together an emergency kit including water and nonperishable food items. Don't forget to prepare to feed your pets as well. You can label items with dates so you can easily rotate them out if they are past expiration.
- Secure outdoor belongings: You can secure your belongings in an outdoor shed or garage. Keep doors locked with weather-resistant locks. For items that cannot be moved inside, an adjustable locking cable may be used. You can use the cable to lock items like table and chairs together.
- Go cordless: Be prepared with an adequate stock of batteries for flashlights, radios and more. Consider external battery packs for charging cell phones.
