Connecticut is known for the variety of weather it has. If you don’t like the weather you are seeing, wait five minutes and it will change. Every season has its challenges. As a homeowner, you need to be prepared no matter what Mother Nature decides to throw at you. 

Have a generator

Hurricanes are a real danger in Connecticut. They cause flooding and the heavy winds take down trees in all parts of the state. It is not unusual to lose electricity for days at a time. Your home needs to be prepared for this emergency. You need to keep food cold if it is still warm outside and provide heat if it is later in the season. You can choose gasoline or propane for your fuel. 

Put your important papers together

Depending on the type of emergency, there can be wind, fire, or water involved. All of them could destroy your important papers. You need to have a container that is both waterproof and fire-resistant. You need to put all your important papers, including your home insurance policy, in the container. Take it with you if you must evacuate. 

Have supplies

It is important to have several days of water both to drink and to use. When the power is out, you may not have tap water. You should also have a supply of batteries.
