New Brunswickers should get ready for the next storms

The province is reminding New Brunswicker's of the importance of preparing for an emergency.

The New Brunswick Emergency Measures Organization says people should be prepared to take care of themselves and their family for at least 72 hours.

The organization says there are three important components to emergency preparedness: know the risks, make a plan and get an emergency kit.

The province is also reminding people of the threat of carbon monoxide.

Carbon monoxide can be fatal, and residents are advised to never run a generator in a home, garage or near a window or air intake outside a home, and reminded it is unsafe to use a barbecue, camping stove or propane heater inside a house or garage.
