Getting ready for winter at home is easy. Here are some tips for preparing for our coastal Massachusetts winters:

  • Make a household plan and collect together the items that will be essential to you and your family in an emergency.

  • Make your home more energy efficient, keep dry (protect pipes and know how to turn off the water supply if you need to) and stay connected (keep a battery operated radio and a list of emergency contact numbers on hand).

  •  For local forecast and public safety information, NOAA Weather Radios and our local Emergency Alert System (EAS) radio stations (ex. 95.9-FM WATD & WBZ 1030-AM) will provide you with the information you need in the event of a power outage due to a storm emergency. 

  • Keep mobile phones and lap top computers fully charged, so you will have use of battery power for a short time at least if there is a power failure.

  • If you have medications that you take on a regular basis make sure you have enough supply should you be unable to go to the pharmacist for a few days.

  • Ensure you have access to a shovel and salt or sand, for clearing snow from doorways, paths and driveways.

  • Create an emergency supply kit that contains what you need. (Log on to for more information on desired kit contents).  Include your vehicle kit when completing your winter preparations.

  • Think about what else is important for you and your family to get by during an emergency e.g. baby/child care needs, pet supplies, food supplies and specialty care and medical needs.

  • Prepare to heat your home safely;  for information regarding home heating financial assistance call the Massachusetts Heatline: 1-800-632-8175
