There are plenty of great articles on what to do AFTER a flood, hurricane, or other disaster; however, there are also a few things that you can do BEFORE to be prepared in the event of an emergency.
- Consider installing a generator in the event of a power outage.
- Make a list of all possessions and include photos. Put on a thumb drive in a waterproof safe and also mail a copy to an out of state family member.
- If a storm is predicted in your area, stock up on essential items, nonperishable goods, pet supplies and prescriptions.
- If necessary, have a portable heating or cooling source like battery-operated fans (and plenty of batteries) and/or propane heaters or firewood for a wood-burning fireplace.
