Technology Changes Preparedness Recommendations

CANTON, Ohio (1480 WHBC) (Sept. 15, 2016) – With all the new technology that’s out there to keep you informed of bad weather and other emergency situations, there are still things to prepare for.

Like, what happens if your phone goes dead and the power will be off for a few days.

The Stark County Emergency Management Agency suggests jotting down important phone numbers on, of all things, a piece of paper!

EMA Director Tim Warstler also recommends the usual 2 to 3 day supply of food and water.

Also, create a family plan of action in an emergency situation.

September is National Preparedness Month.
