In 2019, the United States has had over 760 confirmed tornadoes destroying lives and property.
In 2018, alone, we had the California Wild Fires, Hurricane Michael and Florence, tornadoes and flooding from the Plains to the Southeast, high winds and hail, plus the Nor’easters that pummeled the eastern United States.
Climate driven events and extreme weather are on the rise, and natural disasters are always a possibility. And according to the American Red Cross, house fires account for 90% of their relief efforts. So what can you do? You can make the time for Proactive Planning and Preparation. Plan with your family and prepare your home for different emergency and disaster situations, so you are not caught off-guard. Ask yourself, “What you would need if you were caught in a disaster? Are you ready?”
The Emergency Planning Guide helps you prepare, as easily as possible, for life’s unexpected events. It’s a system of information, useable checklists and suggested tasks to prepare your house and family. The checklists include, creating an emergency plan with members of your household, stocking an emergency kit, preparing your pets, knowing available resources, and more.
During an emergency, your focus will be on your family and on surviving, so use the information and checklists to prepare before disaster strikes. There are many things that you can do to get ready that require little or no money. So, regardless of your financial situation, it is important for you to plan for a potential weather event or natural disaster.
Life after a storm can be emotionally and physically challenging, so it’s important to know that you’ve done everything you can ahead of time to minimize the potential stress. A completed Emergency Planning Guide will have you covered.
