    How do I prepare for a storm?

    Living in South Georgia, we face the prospect of severe storms every summer. Hurricane season begins June 1st and lasts until November 30th. Grady EMC encourages our members to be prepared and to create a plan on what to do in the event of a storm. To help you in your preparation, we have created the Grady EMC Storm Preparedness Checklist below.

    [themify_icon icon=”fa-check-square-o” link=”http://” icon_color=”#3C5720″] Be sure to install your generator according to its instructions – an improperly installed generator is extremely dangerous to linemen)

    [themify_icon icon=”fa-check-square-o” link=”http://” icon_color=”#3C5720″] Always operate your generator outside and protect it from moisture 

    Food Safety Guidelines

    [themify_icon icon=”fa-check-square-o” link=”http://” icon_color=”#3C5720″] Keep refrigerator & freezer doors closed as much as possible

    • An unopened refrigerator keeps food cold for 4 hours
    • A full, unopened freezer keeps food cold for about 48 hours (24 hours for a half full freezer)

    [themify_icon icon=”fa-check-square-o” link=”http://” icon_color=”#3C5720″] Discard refrigerated or frozen food that has been at room temperature for 2 hours or more
