Let's all Be Better Prepared for Emergencies

With all the natural and man-made disasters that we see happening around us, it is important for us to be prepared. Obviously, when disaster strikes, the time to prepare is over; that is why it is so vitally important that we prepare ahead of time.

We can start today by doing little things that don't cost any money, for example:

  1. Do you and your family have and Emergency Plan or an Evacuation Plan in case of an emergency?
  2. Do you know who your emergency contacts are in case of emergency?
  3. Do you have copies of all of your important documents in a safe place?

These are just a few examples of things that you can start doing now to prepare ahead of time for emergencies.The purpose of this blog is to publish information periodically on how you and your family can be prepared for any emergency that comes your way.

We will provide tips and important information on what you can do and what you need to have in case of any type of emergency. Please, this is an open forum and therefore if you have any thoughts or ideas that can help us all be better prepared, please share them with us.
