Are you searching for that special gift this holiday season? As you make your holiday shopping list, remember - this is the perfect time of year to select gifts that will ensure that everyone is safe and prepared when severe weather strikes. Consider purchasing items that can be used in an emergency supply kit, like a weather radio. Even something like a backpack with a flashlight is a nice gift to get people started in assembling an emergency kit for their home or their vehicle because we never know when we may need it. And don't forget, gifts for children can include board games, books and puzzles which are good activities for when the power goes out. This holiday season, feel confident knowing you are helping loved ones, neighbors and friends prepare for emergencies before they happen.
