Preparedness tip of the week: Practice, Practice, Practice!

At least twice a year, conduct fire drills and tornado drills. Try evacuating your home and drive your planned escape route. Also, check your back-up route in case an emergency blocks you main choice.

While you are doing all this practicing, you should also update you phone numbers, supplies and review your plan with everyone.

Now go and practice, practice, practice!
