Preparing your home for an emergency

Have an emergency getaway route

In the event that a storm, tornado, hurricane, or other disaster is bearing down on you, it is important to have a route mapped out before the emergency is imminent. You should have a first choice and then a second choice depending on which direction you need to go. 

Have important papers together

Put all your important papers, birth certificates, insurance policies, mortgage documents, passports, etc. together in a water and fire-proof container and have it where you can easily grab it quickly if you must make a speedy escape. You might want to put a few important photos into the container as well. 

Stock necessities

Make sure you have plenty of bottled water, batteries, light sources that don’t require electricity and a way to cook or warm things up that doesn’t require electricity.

Have a generator

A generator is a lifesaver if you lose power for an extended period. You can choose to have a portable generator, or you can have a whole-house generator. This allows you to maintain as normal a life as possible in the event your area is hit by a disaster. Make sure you have a fuel supply that can last more than a day or two.
