Is your household prepared for an emergency, such as tornadoes, earthquakes, hurricanes, and flooding?
If you don’t have a supply kit and emergency evacuation plan in place, that has been practiced and reviewed each year, you could be in danger when disaster strikes.
Power could be shut down for days or weeks—do you have a backup generator, crank radio, or backup cell phone chargers?
Planning in advance will help ensure that you and your loved ones are able to escape safely and meet up with each other.
September is National Preparedness Month
September is National Preparedness Month. It’s the perfect time to review your emergency supply kits and family communications and evacuation plans. Plan ahead before disaster strikes.
For specific information on disasters, such as fires, tornadoes, earthquakes, hurricanes, and other emergencies, visit Ready.gov.
In addition to making sure you have working smoke and CO detectors on every level of the home, it’s crucial to have an emergency supply kit and a family plan in place, and practice it at least once a year with everyone in the household.
Prepare an Emergency Supply Kit
It’s important to have a kit prepared for at least 3 days of survival, such as food, drink, and medical supplies.
Consider having two kits. One so that you can stay where you are and another that you can take with you in the event of an emergency.
You will need a gallon of water per day per person. Water is important for both drinking and sanitation.
Include three days of non-perishable foods that are easy to store, such as canned goods, protein bars, dry fruit, and other items.
If you live in colder weather climates, make sure you have blankets and other warm gear for everyone in the household.
Don’t forget to include things like duct tape and garbage bags that can be used to seal windows and doors and to create a battier between you and any contamination outside.
Items to Include in Your Emergency Supply Kit (as recommended by FEMA):
- Water (one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days, for drinking and sanitation
- Food, at least a three0dat supply on non-perishable food
- Battery-powered hand crank radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert and extra batteries for both
- Flashlight with extra batteries
- First aid kit
- Whistle to signal for help
- Dust mask, to help filter contaminated air and plastic sheeting and duct tape to shelter-in-place
- Moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation
- Wrench or pliers to turn off utilities
- Can opener for food (if kit contains canned food)
- Local maps
It’s important to review this list and also consider the unique needs of your family and household. For instance, emergency supply kits should include prescription medicine, insulin shots, and other materials and equipment for individualized needs, such as supplies for pets and seniors.
Don’t forget about the emergency supply kit that should be in your car at all times. This Car Kit should at least include:
- Jumper cables
- Jack and spare tire
- Flares or reflective triangle
- Ice scraper
- Strong flashlight
- Car cell phone charger (a jumper cable kit can also double as a charger)
- Cat litter or sand
Visit Ready.gov for more car and vehicle safety tips.
Create an Emergency Family Plan
Plan ahead of the emergency and practice it with your family at least one a year. Your emergency escape plan should include:
- Family communication plan (review this information at least once a year and make any updates as necessary)
- Evacuation routes (at least two exits out of each room)
- Meeting places (in the home, in the neighborhood, outside the neighborhood, and outside the city/town)
- Emergency evacuation routes from your local authorities (don’t take shortcuts as they could be dangerous and/or blocked)
- Emergency supply kit (don’t forget it)
- Sign up for emergency alerts by downloading the Red Cross and FEMA apps, and texting PREPARE to 43362 (4FEMA).
- Consider buying a NOAA Weather Radio.
- What is your shelter plan?
- What is your evacuation route?
- How will everyone receive emergency alerts and warnings?
- What is your family/household communication plan?
When disasters strikes, you and your family could get separated. That’s why it’s important that everyone in the household has the phone numbers, addresses, and agreed upon plan in the case of an emergency.
Start a group chat now with everyone you wish to keep in contact with during an emergency. That way, one text will get delivered to everyone automatically.
Download FEMA’s Family Communication Plan and fill it out. Print out hard copies for everyone in the household to store in their backpack, wallet, purse, or elsewhere. We also recommend putting the list of contact information on the fridge or another conspicuous place.
Review this document every year and update it as necessary. Add important emergency contact information into each of your phones and devices.
Once you have filled out your communications plan, the next step is to go over the list with your household and practice different disaster scenarios with everyone.

“There are more than 1 million dependents of killed or disabled servicemen and women. It’s our mission to make sure that no families are left behind.”
– Major Dan Rooney, CEO/Founder of Folds of Honor
OnTime Service is proud to announce our involvement with the Folds of Honor Foundation.
We have committed to raise $5,000 to help Folds of Honor scholarship programs for the families of America’s fallen and disabled servicemen and women. Together, we can do our part to honor American heroes.
Stand with us to honor our flag, our fallen, and our future. Make a safe and secure donation to our Folds of Honor Fundraiser Event.
Folds of Honor
Honor Their Sacrifice. Educate Their Legacy.
Watch Major Dan Rooney tell the story of why he decided to commit his life to the families of our American heroes:
In 2007, Major Rooney formed the Folds of Honor, a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization that provides educational scholarships to the families of fallen and disabled service-members.
- The need that we are serving is great, and we can use all the help we can get to fulfill this mission to provide scholarships for the families of our fallen and disabled service members.
- The Military Casualty Information database indicates there have been 58,456 total fallen and combat wounded Service Members across the three primary military operations since September 11, 2001. And, there are 1.5 million dependents of those who’ve served in Iraq or Afghanistan.
- By standing in the financial gap of the more than one million dependents adversely affected by war, Folds of Honor provides educational scholarships to the children and spouses of those killed or disabled while serving our nation.
- Scholarships are used to subsidize the costs of tuition, school books, fees, on-campus room and board, special tools and equipment necessary for coursework, school-approved tutoring, and other approved educational expenses that a student’s school may deem appropriate.
About the Scholarships
- Scholarships are awarded up to $5,000. Award amount is based on the “unmet need” calculated on the Financial need page of the application process.
- Since 2007, Folds of Honor has awarded more than 10,000 educational scholarships to family members of service members who were killed or disabled while on active duty.
- The need for donations is more critical now than ever before. For the first time in Folds of Honor history, the organization is unable to award a scholarship to every qualified applicant– including those who had been previous recipients.
OnTime Service is a proud supporter of the Folds of Honor Foundation and their mission to help military families.
Watch these videos to learn about the important impact Folds of Honor has on real American families:
From the Fold of Honor
“We speak with a sense of duty, as we realize our freedoms are courtesy of the 1% of Americans who have fought to defend the other 99%. Driven by the love of country, we evoke a sense of patriotism and never stop working on behalf of the families we serve.”
How You Can Help
Help us help the families of our nation’s heroes. Together, we can honor those heroes who stand guard over our freedoms and make a difference in the lives of their families who have sacrificed so much.
Making a donation is easy and secure. Any amount you can donate will be greatly appreciated! Please share with friends and family.
We encourage you to set up your own personal fundraising page. You can stand with our military families by organizing a bake sale, race, employee event, art gallery, dance-off, or anything else. Patriots, get creative!
Join the largest grass-roots golf fundraiser in America by signing up to participate today.
Thank you for supporting the mission of the Folds of Honor Foundation!
You’re watching your favorite holiday film with the family and suddenly—black out! Now what? Do you know where the flashlight is? Do you have extra batteries? Do you own a generator? If you answered “No” to one or more of these questions, this blog is for you.
Homes and cities are more prone to power outages during the holiday months. Weather is more extreme in the winter and this is when it is more likely to happen.
OnTime Service helps you prepare for when the lights let you down. Don’t be caught off guard in the dark; you can handle a power outage smoothly with some pre-planning and a few emergency essentials.
Tips for When It Goes Dark
1. Get Weather Alerts
Try to predict when you need to have your power outage essentials on hand. Sign up for weather alerts on your phone and computer. If you know there is going to be a heavy storm, one that could possibly knock down power lines or trees or cause enough distress to municipal electrical work that the whole neighborhood loses power, get your kit and keep it in a place you can easily get to, even in the dark.
2. What Should Be In My Storm Safety Kit?
• Extra Batteries
• Battery-Powered Radio
• Bottled Water
• Non-Perishable Food
• First Aid Kit
• Socks & Gloves
3. Got a Generator? Hook It Up!
Purchasing a generator is one way families prepare for power outages. Generators offer peace of mind because when hooked up they provide emergency power. You are then able to charge your communication devices or keep the fridge running cold so your food doesn’t go sour while you wait for full power to be restored. They are especially useful if there are young or elderly at home.
If you don’t own a generator, remember, On Time offers a wide selection of reliable generators. Contact one of our specialists today. Our team is trained on how to hook you up with the right generator at the right price. That’s just one of the many ways we’re there to help you weather any electrical storm.
4. Get Warm
It’s never a bad idea to have jackets, socks, gloves, beanies, sleeping bags, and blankets available and easy to access during a power outage. Most outages occur at night when storms often reach their peak. This is also when temperatures tend to drop the lowest.
No heater in the middle of a winter storm can be a discomfort and a danger to your family’s health and wellbeing. The heat may not be working, but you’ll never freeze if you keep warm clothing and bedding options organized and ready for emergency layering.
5. Keep Yourself Updated
It’s important to stay connected to the news. This may be harder to do when the power is out because you won’t have access to the television or radio programming that comes from a unit plugged into the wall. There are several radios you can buy that are battery operated. This is an emergency essential.
Phones have limited battery life, and there is no way to predict if your phone will die before the power comes back. Without a charged phone, a radio will keep you up to date on updates from the utility company or any local announcements regarding the storm. Buy some backup batteries and chargers to keep your phone fully charged. We recommend purchasing a car jump starter kit that doubles as an emergency battery.
And, at the very least, if you’re weathering a milder storm, it can keep your family dancing to music all night long if necessary!
6. Decide on a Plan B
It can seem fairly easy to prepare for a power outage that lasts a couple hours or even a full 24, but it becomes much more difficult and dangerous to endure a power outage lasting multiple days. Be in touch with friends and relatives. Plan how you will exit your home and what your transportation will be. If you need to travel to someone else’s home that is warm and inhabitable, know who that will be and how you will get there.

7. Protect Your Appliances
Lighting storms can cause strong power surges that may destroy or harm your plugged-in appliances and electronics. Make sure you have whole-home surge protection to protect your electrical valuables. OnTime Service can help you install this important home protection. Contact us to schedule service before the next big storm!
If you don’t have whole-home surge protection and a storm is on the way, make sure all of your expensive appliances and electronics are plugged into surge protectors. Power strips are not the same as surge protectors, so make sure you carefully read the label. And always look for a seal from an independent testing laboratory, such as UL. Click here for tips on shopping for plug-in surge protectors. If you don’t have working plug-in surge protectors, unplug your electronics until the storm has passed.
8. Enjoy Yourself, If Possible!
Families get to spend a lot more time together during the holidays. If a power outage hits when the family is together, make it a time to bond more than a time to be in fear. As long as you have your kit of emergency essentials, you’ll be able to handle a short power outage flawlessly.
In the meantime, light some candles and bust out the board games, tell spooky stories with a flashlight, pretend you’re camping and build a fort, or even put on a shadow puppet show! There are many ways to stay connected even when your appliances are not.
Wishing you a safe and happy holiday season!
