Helpful ideas for the impending storm

The Darke County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management would like to list some helpful ideas for preparing for the impending winter storm:

  • Plan on enough supplies for a minimum of 3 days without utilities.
  • Have spare batteries for flashlights and portable battery powered radio.
  • Spare gas for generators, also DO NOT operate generators inside the house or garages, they should be outside.
  • Use Cell phones sparingly, without electricity you will not be able to charge them.
  • If you are on oxygen or any other life support – plan ahead for supplies and electricity or possible another place to stay during the storm event.
  • If you use candles for light – use them safely.

These are only a few precautions to take for more information go to or Google winter preparedness.
