Regardless of the type of disaster, there are things you can do to prepare. Downed utility lines, power company blackouts, heavy snow falls or summer storms can all lead to power outages. Many people turn to a portable generator for a temporary solution without knowing the risks. If a fire breaks out in your home, you may have only a few minutes to get out safely once the smoke alarm sounds.
Everyone needs to know what to do and where to go if there is a fire.
By taking the time to create an emergency supplies kit, your family will be prepared in the event of a disaster. The intensity of hurricanes that will hit land is measured in terms of categories that relate wind speeds and potential damage. Even less intense storms can cause damage in areas that have not prepared in advance.
