Disaster Preparation Checklist: Do This Now
Tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, wildfires, tsunamis—these are a few examples of disasters that have required evacuations.
In some of these situations, people may have very little time to prepare to leave their home. Here in Florida, hurricanes are typically anticipated and we may have a day or two to prepare. Regardless of the disaster situation, being prepared increases our chances of survival.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA, says having an emergency kit, or Hurricane Kit here in Florida, is an important step to prepare and protect your household for unforeseen events. An emergency kit is essential for short term survival, providing vital items for you, your family or household, including domestic pets.
If you and your family don’t have an Evacuation Kit, also called a Go Kit, Hurricane Kit, Go Bag, or Survival Bag, now is the time to make one. Download our our customized checklist at here. Our Go! Kit will help you and your family prepare for the unexpected.
