Emergency Family and Pet Preparedness
In the blink of an eye, our lives can change. None of us want to experience loss due to fire, water, or storm events. However, it is important to be prepared, and always think about safety first. Family members should have an agreed upon meeting spot if they would have to exit the home in the event of a sudden emergency. Also, an escape ladder should be positioned near a window inside the home. Often, families have pets, and let us not forget the furry ones of our family. Is there a "get away bag" near an exit with a few cans of food for the furry ones, some water, and one or two of their favorite toys, and some of their medications packed. Also, are there friends or family that would take the pets in if you and your family were to be displaced as a result of a fire, water, or storm event loss at your place of living.
