With everything going on in the world today it makes us wonder how prepared we really are. Even if an emergency isn’t constantly at our doorstep, our lives will run a lot smoother and we will feel a little more in control with some proper planning.


Make sure you have a back up system that is in place and check it sporadically
Be aware of evacuation procedures
Keep a first aid kit in your office
Be able to quickly find documents of ownership and entitlement to property
Have access to your bank records and account numbers
If possible let employees know where and when they can be contacted


Does your family have a plan for abnormal situations?
Can you quickly put your hands on all vital documents?
Do you have cash on hand in your home in case you need to leave?


Make sure you have a full tank of gas and put together a small bag of supplies in the corner of the trunk for emergencies:

Warm hat and mitts
Small blanket
Flashlight with spare batteries
Bottled water
First Aid Kit
Sanitation Supplies
Salt or Sand
