The big winter storm that blew throughout the northwest can serve as a wake up call. Local emergency preparedness leaders are urging you to make sure you are prepared for power outages and winter related emergencies. Emergency Manager for Deschutes County, Don Webber, says you should always have a 72 hour kit in your home and car. He says its also a good idea to get to know your neighbors:  “Be sure that if there's somebody elderly, go out and check on them. Get to know your neighbor, but make sure those elderly folks are taken care of." And if your power goes out, don't be tempted to use a barbecue or other camping equipment inside your home- he says the results can be deadly.
