In the spirit of the holiday season, the Seminole County Office of Emergency Management would like to offer some gift suggestions ideal for the person who has “everything”. Every home can use a weather radio. This is a very practical gift that can be invaluable to residents when hazardous weather approaches. The weather radio is especially important this year as we enter an extremely high El Nino weather season.
In addition to weather radios, stocking stuffers can include flashlights, first-aid kits, smoke and carbon-monoxide detectors and fire extinguishers. These are essential safety supplies every home and small business should have.
If home kits are in order, perhaps it’s time to check on a second safety kit for their vehicle or boat. These items are widely available and reasonably priced to fit any budget.
