Did you know that September is National Preparedness Month? Are you ready for an emergency to hit your family? And I’m not just talking about being able to find a flashlight in the pitch dark if you lose power.
You’ve heard the saying: Expect the best, but prepare for the worst, right? Go to www.ready.gov to learn what to do in the event of a natural disaster. You’ll find links for making a plan and building a disaster kit, how to plan for disaster with kids and pets, and lots more.
Disaster or no disaster, it’s a good idea to keep organized records of important information and be sure to back up that information. You can scan and store important documents to a secure Cloud server, keep copies in a safe deposit box, or give copies to a trusted family member and do the same for them. Being organized will help you stay calm in pressured situations.
“Share” this link with your friends and family to make sure they are ready too.
