CSP Spotlight: National Preparedness Month - Make a Plan for Yourself, Family, and Friends Featured

Planning ahead for disasters is critical. Are you prepared? Here are some things to do help protect you, your family, and your friends.  

  • Make an Emergency Plan.
  • Sign up for alerts and warnings in your area.
  • Learn your evacuation zone and have an evacuation plan.
  • Check your insurance coverage and review the Document and Insure Property guide.
  • Plan financially for the possibility of disaster.
  • Download a group texting app so your entire crew can keep in touch before, during & after an emergency.
  • Practice evacuating in the car with your animals, so they’re more comfortable if you need to evacuate in an emergency.
  • Financial prep tip: flood-proof important documents by putting them in plastic bags to protect against water damage.
  • Keep some cash on hand in case of emergencies.
