Be Prepared For Summer Storms
Summer storm damage can be catastrophic
Michigan is notorious for sudden, violent spring and summer storms. You can be one step ahead of Mother Nature with a well-stocked Emergency Supply Kit. Your kit should be assembled and easily accessible in the event of an emergency or evacuation.
The America Red Cross recommends stocking a 3-day supply of essentials. Keep in mind it may take that long for help to arrive.
