Suburban Storm Prep

Sunday December 9th 3:30-4:30 at Black Cow Coffee Roasters, learn about how to prepare for the next storm or power outage. Some storm prep gadgets make for great gift ideas- come and check them out!

Hurricane Sandy was a wake up call on many levels. Here in Northern Westchster, many households found themselves unprepared to go a week or more without electricity and heat.

So in response to the ongoing predicament we face as storms fueled by climate change continue to wreck havoc, I am focusing on creating a Suburban Storm Prep booklet filled with practical and inexpensive gadgets and strategies that will help you and your family to better deal with the next storm or power outage.  What I learned in my research is that there are many “preppers” out there, getting ready for a Mad Max sort of collapse, that’s not my focus. My goal is to simply empower folks to become more self reliant and my community to become more resilient.

I’ll be hosting a Suburban Storm Prep event next Sunday December 9th at the Black Cow Coffee Shop in Pleasantville from 3:30- 4:30. If you’re in the neighborhood please stop by, enjoy a cup of coffee or tea and chat with me about your Sandy experiences and check out the many ideas that I’m crowd sourcing for the suburban storm prep booklet that will be available online in early 2013.

Looking for a unique holiday gift idea that can help friends or family be better prepared for future storms? You'll find great ideas here!
