Being Prepared in a Storm Situation
We should always be prepared for the unexpected. It is very hard to predict when a natural disaster will occur. Emergency disaster kits are important steps to be prepared and to help protect your household from these events. Make sure your emergency kit is in a readily available place that is known to everyone in the household.
Here are a couple of items that should be included in your emergency disaster kit:
First aid kit
Batteries, power banks, & a cell phone with chargers
Set of clothes & shoes
Whistle to signal for help
Set of tools
Box of matches or lighter
Battery powered clock / and or radio
Personal items (ie. toiletries, extra pair of contact lenses -if you use them- etc.)
All of these items can be bought at stores or you can even purchase prepared kits online if you would like to purchase a kit that is ready to go. SERVPRO of South Madison County hopes you could share this information with friends or family to help them be prepared and safe for any unexpected events.
