If disaster strikes will you be ready? Planning for disasters before they occur will determine how well you recover. There are many things to consider. Fire, hurricane, flood, tornado, crime, etc can occur, often without warning. Start with the biggest concerns first: safety of family, home, and business. Consider what could happen and plan for each event as you are able. Will you need to relocate home or business? How will you handle communication if power is lost and/or cell phones don’t work? What are the minimum amounts of water and food you will need? Are your important papers kept in a safe place? How will you move around if roads are blocked or flooded? What will you do with pets? You can find some very helpful information online at redcross.org as well as ready.gov to begin the process. Planning for recovery beats reacting to disaster any day!
