Earthquakes, tornados, hurricanes and floods are an unfortunate fact of life in many areas. Here are some steps you can take to get ready before any kind of disaster occurs:

 

  • Be prepared to spend up to 72 hours without utilities, medical help or communications.

 

  • Start an emergency kit in a crushproof box containing bottled drinking water, a first aid kit, flashlight, non-perishable food, blankets, basic toiletries, a portable radio and extra batteries. Camping gear can also be valuable. Make sure your kit is up-to-date and easily available in a safe, dry place.

 

  • Strap your hot water heater and any gas appliances to a wall. Turn off gas at the meter ONLY if you smell a leak. Leave your home immediately and call the utility company from a safe place.

 

  • Hold a home evacuation drill. Have a plan for reuniting your family. Keep photos of family members in your wallet in case they turn up missing.

 

  • Educate your children. Get a copy of their school’s disaster policy regarding emergency transportation and student release.

 

  • Keep a stash of cash hidden in the event that banks or automatic teller machines shut down.

 

Please let me know by phone or email if I can provide additional tips. I value having the opportunity to be your trusted real estate resource.
 
 
Thanks,
