Metro Ottawa posted a list of key items to keep handy in case of emergency.
And with the nasty weather ahead – although looks like Ottawa will escape mostly unscathed – it’s a good reminder to be prepared.
extra phone battery (or portable charger – my parents bought me one for Christmas that I use way more than I thought I would!)
non-perishable food, water, toilet paper and a can opener
first aid kit / flashlight and batteries / portable radio / whistle / duct tape / tarp
I’ll be working on this later today…
