emergency preparation checklist for home

In an Emergency: In Your Home

Birth certificates and passports are only a few of the documents you need in order to be able to put your hands on in a moment’s notice. Being prepared for an emergency at home includes not only being able to get to those important papers, but also includes an evacuation route, knowing what other valuables you need to gather, where the water and gas shutoffs are, and more. A Call to Order is Community Emergency Response Trained by the Office of Emergency Management in Colorado Springs, CO. We know the steps to take in order to protect you and your valuables in the event of a disaster.

During a disaster, family members and loved ones may not be together. It is important that you have a communication plan, a household plan and an evacuation plan that everyone knows. Have a plan for anyone with special needs and for what you will do with your pets if you have to evacuate to a shelter. Gather all of your important papers together now, and put them in a safe, easily accessible place such as a PortaVault. Don’t wait for a disaster to strike, being prepared ahead of time can make a disaster survivable.
