Living in California for most of life (except for a couple years that I was in college out of state), earthquakes are a part of normal life. There’s talk about “the big one” and when the weather changes people start questioning if we’re going to be hit with another. Did you know that September is National Preparedness Month ? It’s the perfect push to get your (my) act together. I’m adding an emergency checklist for your family binder. This will help with all kinds of emergencies and storm preparedness. This checklist has the bases covered with things you need to get done to be prepared. You can tackle it all at once or do a little bit at a time. It’s up to you. Have you done any of these things on the list? I’ll be sharing a few other ideas in the future for emergency prep. I figure if I commit to sharing here, that will ensure that I get it done for my family, right? Master Lock has jumped on this month with tips and solutions for keeping families and their stuff safe all the time but especially in emergencies, severe weather preparation. They recently donated 200 padlocks to Washington where homes were destroyed by wildfires. Not only do they have padlocks and locking cables but there is a Master Lock Vault, a digital safe deposit box. You can store digital duplicates of passports, wills, tax returns in it. So make a family binder from here but then store another version online and be double covered! Check out where to buy Master Lock products.
Have you done anything to prepare yet for potential emergencies? I’d love to hear any tips or suggestions you have!
