Preparedness Tip of the Week - Pick a Place

This week's tip is short and simple, but oh so necessary. Have you picked a place?

Pick a place to meet after a disaster (one close to home and one outside your area).

If the disaster were to occur to your home or neighborhood, you should have a pre-determined meeting place nearby (perhaps a grocery store parking lot, a church or a restaurant).

You will also need a location in case of a large-scale disaster (ie. hurricane, tornado outbreak or terrorist attack). This should be an easily accessible location in the event of a major disaster.

Happy preparedness and stay warm!
