SEVERE WEATHER RESOURCES
Is your community prepared for severe weather? Thunderstorms, heavy rains, hurricanes and winter weather can all cause power outages and flooding, which can raise food safety questions, like “How can I best prepare my refrigerator and freezer in advance of a storm?” and “How long will my perishable foods stay safe if the power goes out?”
FSIS has emergency preparedness resources here, which you can use in outreach efforts in your community. Our most popular and comprehensive severe weather publication is the Consumer’s Guide to Food Safety: Severe Storms and Hurricanes. You can print this publication or request free copies by emailing us at FSIS.email@example.com.
We’ve also got a handy infographic in English and Spanish about what consumers should do to protect themselves from foodborne illnesses before, during and after a severe storm. Check out our severe storms Flickr page for more images and infographics that you can use in your social media messages throughout severe weather events.
