Just In Case

September is Emergency Preparedness Month and a great reminder to be prepared. Natural and man-made disasters can strike at any time. The National Safety Council recommends the following general precautions that apply to many emergency situations:

  • Have an emergency kit in your car and at least three days of food and water in the home for all family members and pets.
  • Store all important documents in a fire-proof safe or safety deposit box.
  • Make sure to have a family communication plan in place. Include all important phone numbers written down or memorized.

Helpful resources to plan-ahead and be informed include ready.gov and emergency.cdc.gov


  • Keep freezers and refrigerators closed.
  • Disconnect appliances and electronics.
  • Only use generators outdoors and away from windows.
  • Check on neighbors.
