Preparing an emergency kit

At SMUD, we’re working hard 24/7 to power our community with safe and reliable power, but we know the unexpected can happen, and that includes power outages. An emergency kit is a great way to be ready for any unexpected event. By putting safety essentials together in one place, you’ll always be prepared.
