In Alabama, we can experience a variety of weather catastrophes including tropical storms, hurricanes, ice storms, tornadoes, thunderstorms, and floods. And, severe weather can affect power delivery across the entire state. When outages do occur, your public power system responds immediately and works as quickly and safely as possible to restore your service. No matter the weather event, it’s important that we prepare ourselves and our families for whatever Mother Nature throws our way.
AMEA provides storm preparedness resources which will be most helpful to you and your family. Some of these resources include power restoration steps, generator safety, and tips on preparing before, during and after a storm.
Hurricane season is June 1-November 30. Visit the National Hurricane Center for more information on how you can prepare your family, home and business for the season.
ReadyAlabama is Alabama’s statewide emergency preparedness campaign designed to encourage Alabamians to develop and use an emergency kit. The ReadyAlabama web site, www.readyalabama.gov, includes tips and suggestions to help Alabamians prepare for emergencies. Serve Alabama (the Governor’s Office of Faith-Based and Volunteer Service), through funding from the Alabama Department of Homeland Security, administers the campaign.
The Alabama Emergency Management Agency also has information online at www.ema.alabama.gov.
