Congratulations To All

All the employees of Genesis Security wish to congratulate the Community on enduring the recent storms of November that consisted of snow, rain and black-outs.

It’s great to see everyone pull together and we would like to point out an unknown personal favorite individual who took the time to help push out one of our Smart Cars that had stopped to help another person.

By making it through all of this perhaps now would be a good time to review the following items:

Power Failures

● Ensure you have a supply of batteries, a flashlight, candles as well as lighters and matches.
● Keep a charged cell phone handy
● Keep extra candles in a fridge as the temperature will harden the wax and you will find that they burn even longer.
● Connect up to a UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) to protect against any loss of important computer data. Always save your current working files every 5-10 minutes.
● Understand that a blackout can happen anytime, anywhere to anyone. Do not get complacent. Be ready for it NOW.

Snow Storms

● Do not drive unless you have to.
● Leave earlier so you can safely reach your destination in time.
● Be aware that black ice may be anywhere.
● If driving, wear adequate clothing in case you become stuck and have to wait
for assistance.
● Keep an emergency roadside kit in your vehicle at all times.
● When a storm is predicted, stock up on groceries, medications and any other
necessities to avoid the need for travel during the storm.
● Wait until the storm has subsided before going out and attempted to clear
away any snow. Take it slowly and take frequent breaks.

Take pride in the fact that as a Community everyone pulled together and assistance was
provided where needed by many selfless people.
