In times of emergency it is always better to be prepared. I know how important this is especially during the winter, and after going through the 2013 ice storm experience and having to live through 5 days without power.Essential utilities such as electricity should not be taken for granted. This became a reality for us after experiencing the ice storm, and it also changed our lifestyle. Now we take precautions and this Emergency Preparedness Guide from Toronto Hydro has a checklist that helps us make sure we have the essential items we need.
