Preparation for Hurricane Sandy

As Hurricane Sandy approaches land, we urge our families, staff, clients, and neighbors to prepare and plan for the worst.

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett has declared a statewide disaster emergency so that state, county, and municipal governments can respond. Here are some additional recommendations to ride out the storm:

Remain inside your home during harsh conditions. If you need to leave your home, follow posted road warnings to keep yourself and others safe.

Make sure you have supplies to last a few days in case of prolonged power outages. Supplies should include batteries, food, water, essential medicines, and first aid supplies.

Have a communication plan in place with friends and family so they know where you are during the storm.

If you live in a flood plain, be prepared to evacuate if local officials call for an evacuation. You will only be asked to evacuate if necessary, so it is important to follow official orders.

We hope everyone stays safe as we ride out this storm together.
