Starting Storm Season
Storm season runs from June 1st to November 30. With such a large portion of the year enveloped by storm season it is important to always be prepared. Most families or households tend to stock up at the beginning of the storm season and keep those good for the whole season without switching them out. It is important to switch out things like gas a batteries throughout the season. A good way to make sure you are switching out the gas for say things like a generator is to use the gas continually throughout the season for things like the weed eater and lawn mower. When one canister is empty you fill it up and rotate it to the back of the line for use. This will insure that you always have fresh gas if a storm were to happen and do not need to run out at the last minute before a storm.
You also need to check batteries every three months in things like flashlights, battery powered radios, and anything else that may run on batteries in your storm kit. Your batteries maybe fine and not depleted, but you don't want to risk it if a storm comes and have to use your back-up right away.
Make sure you always have adequate water supply, food and medicine for everyone in the household including the pets. Humans in the home will be able to eat shelf stable things but dog food does not last as long, the same goes for medicine. Always make sure your medicine is up to date and you have a few days supply.
