       o   Check/change batteries in flashlights, headlamps, ect.
       o   Check/change batteries in UPS. Is your UPS functioning properly? Has it been tested?
       o   If having issues with speakers or other items, check power supply, wall warts, ect. Sometimes it’s the simplest things that get overlooked.
       o   Check expiration dates on food in go bags.
 
  •         It’s that time of year to start preparing for the rain.
    • Replace worn windshield wipers as needed.
    • With the weather starting to cool it’s a good idea to check tire pressure.
    • Check tire tread and replace tires as necessary.
    • Check washer fluid level.
