work in case of problems

- Keep a coffee cup, even if you do not drink coffee. It will be
really handy if you are trapped at work. Keep a knife, fork, and spoon
for the same reason.
- Keep a change of clothes in case of coffee collision in the
- Keep a change of underwear in case you eat bad food at a
restaurant. It happens.
- If you sometimes wear impractical shoes to work (like heels),
keep some practical boots there.
- Maintain three lunches that do not need power or water to prepare
so you can be stuck at work for 24 hours without going hungry, or if
you forget your lunch. Don't let the supplies get old or run low.
- Keep six little bottles of water. Don't let the supplies get old
or run low. Replace every 6 months.
- Keep a flashlight & batteries somewhere you can get to when
the power fails.
- You will be a hero if you have matches & a candle for the
bathroom during power outages.
You will also need things that are
not on this list.
When the power fails, or any other
disaster strikes, unplug all valuable electronics. Better yet, ask for
a UPS (Uninterruptable Power Supply) to plug them into.
If water starts coming up out of the
storm drains, leave the area immediately. Three inches of water in a
low spot blocks a road.
