Things To Think About Now
Along with the new year comes New Year’s resolutions. There is always the go to of diet and exercise craze, but if we have learned anything from the past few years it’s the importance of disaster preparedness. Preparing for a disaster will not only give you peace of mind for yourself and for your family but it can also save your life and the lives of those around you. And preparedness does not have to be expensive, there are things you can do with your family now that will not cost anything but your time in doing it.
It could be a simple as discussing an emergency communication plan with the people you live with or finding items around your house to put in an emergency kit. Once you’re prepared for a larger disaster like an earthquake, you’re prepared for a smaller incident like a power outage. The important key is: Don’t wait to prepare! Prepare now for you and your family for the unexpected.
