Create an Emergency Preparedness Kit for Your Home

One of my favorite online resources House Logic has put together a useful list for creating an emergency preparedness kit for your home. Whether your home is vulnerable to wildfires, floods or other natural disasters, you want to be ready. The first step is making sure your important papers have been safeguarded — insurance policies, the deed to your home, passports, social security cards, etc.

Next, create a “grab and go” emergency preparedness kit to take with you if you need to evacuate your home. It should include things like food, water, first aid supplies, a flashlight, batteries, a radio or TV, personal hygiene supplies (e.g., toothpaste, toothbrush, soap, etc.) as well as any medications you might need while you’re away.

Make sure your family is ready for any emergency, visit House Logic online here for the complete checklist and other emergency preparedness tips.
