Being prepared doesn’t just mean having some spare batteries on hand or knowing who you would call in an emergency situation, but those ARE all part of the needed planning to help protect yourself and your family prior to an emergency.
An emergency is a sudden unexpected crisis that requires some type of
immediate action and disrupts your daily life.
An emergency may last for a short time span or may stretch out over a
period of several days or weeks.
Emergencies can be manmade or arise as a result of a natural disaster - regardless,
there are 3 easy steps you can take to be better prepared for the future.
