Are you prepared for a natural disaster?

This spring is an ideal time for MWA customers to prepare by getting a Family Emergency Plan and Basic Ready Kit in place, when severe weather includes the possibility of tornados in Middle Georgia. For starters, sit down with your family to decide how you will get in contact with each other, where you will go, and what you will do in the case of an emergency. Family Emergency Plans can help. These include designated meeting places and contact information for all family members, including names, dates of birth, social security numbers, and important medical information. In addition, write down info on the places and times each family member spends the majority of their day – where they will be and when. As for a Basic Ready Kit, store at least a three-day supply of bottled water, a can opener and non-perishable food. Additional items may include a radio, flash lights with extra batteries, a first aid kit, a whistle to signal for help, a face mask for filtering contaminated air, tarps and duct tape for shelter repairs, moist wipes, garbage bags and plastic bags for hygiene, tools (or at least a wrench and pliers to turn off utilities), and local maps. More information on emergency preparedness is available online at or on the Ready Georgia website at, via the link below.
