Eight Disaster Preparedness Tips

When disaster strikes having and using a preparedness plan can ensure you and your loved one's safety. Below are eight tips to help secure your safety when disaster strikes. 

  • Communicate Where You Will Be: Be sure to contact someone outside of the affected area. Let them know where you will be during the disaster. Business owners should remind their employees of how they will be notified when the facility reopens. 
  • Know The Warning Signs And Alert Signals For Your Area: Frequently check your local tv stations, radio stations, or community alert systems to stay up to date on emergency information. 
  • Check Your Emergency Survival Kit: Your emergency survival kit should be stocked with essential survival items and should be kept in an easily accessible place.
  • Collect Emergency Building Materials: It is a good idea to have extra plywood, sandbags, and waterproof tarps. 
  • Fuel Up Your Vehicles And Equipment: Make sure you have a supply of fresh fuel for emergency generators. It's a good idea to have an extra fuel supply and to store that extra fuel in an approved container in a safe place. 
  • Be Sure You Have Car Chargers For Your Cell Phone, Smart Phone, And Other Portable Devices: Having car chargers can help you connect with contacts if the power goes out. Don't forget to fully charge all devices before the storm. 
  • Secure All Outdoor Objects Or Move Them Inside: Common household items can become airborne in high winds. Business owners should secure signage, benches, and equipment to minimize potential damage. 
  • Know How To Shut Off All Utilities: It is a good idea to know how to turn off your gas, electricity, and water. However, you should consider utilities that could minimize damage to your home and leave them on.
