3 Key Steps to Prepare for an Emergency

Thursday, September 15th, 2011

We strongly believe that your home is your castle. Shouldn’t it be as safe as it can be to protect your family? Since September is National Emergency Preparedness Month we have put together some tips and website information to help you be as informed as possible when planning for an emergency.

Step 1:  Get a Kit

  • This kit should contain emergency supplies such as non-perishable foods, water, work gloves, clothing AND supplies for any pets in the household.

Step 2:  Make a Plan

  • What is your family’s plan if a disaster strikes? Create a way for family members to contact each other, if they are not together. Where will you meet? Consider a designated call coordinator that lives outside of your area, such as a friend or relative who can act as a call center. It is sometimes easier to call out of state than across town.
  • Plan in advance where to go in your home if there is a storm warning and each person’s responsibilities. For example, assign who will gather identification and communication items, such as purses, wallets and cell phones. Assign who will round up the pets and who will double check and secure doors, etc.
  • Practice, Practice, Practice.

Step 3:  Be Informed

  • Make sure everyone knows the difference between a “watch” and a “warning”.
  • Be aware of surrounding conditions and learn about emergency plans in your area.

These simple steps can make a BIG difference on how you handle an emergency.
