Quick Tips - Simple Steps Everyone Can Take

 Natural Disasters Are A Fact Of Life:

Begin by researching which types of events could occur in your community. Determine how to care for your pet(s) since most temporary shelters only permit service dogs to enter. Start by visiting the American Red Cross website's Animal Safety section to learn about suggested alternatives (www.redcross.org).



Create a short list of what to take in case of a fire. Finally, create a Disaster Supply Kit for your home, your car, and your office. Your home kit should include:  

  


Be sure to review the contents of the kit every six months, and replace anything that's about to expire.  

Your office and car kits should contain a pared down collection of the items mentioned above, as well as comfortable shoes. In addition, you'll want to add flares and jumper cables to your car's inventory.

Natural disasters are a fact of life. Each area of the country has its own challenges, from hurricanes on the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts to tornados in the Plains and earthquakes in California. Regardless of where you live, it's important to have plans in place to ensure that you and your family are prepared should an emergency arise.
