Pile of water damaged furniture and contents along the roadway Storms and fires (among others) do not make an appointment with you ahead of time. Get prepared NOW!

When was the last time you wanted to drive to Florida, but didn’t prepare any routes in advance?  Did you say: “I know Florida is south and east of here, so I’ll drive as far as I can east, then turn south, then east again, then south….:

Of course you never did!  You planned the most efficient route, taking into consideration stops for gas, food, breaks, etc.

Now another question:  Are you prepared for the next disaster?  Or, if something does happen, do you plan to go one way, and then another, etc.?

September is National Preparedness Month, highlighting a time to plan NOW for what may happen later on.  Just a few things you should prepare for:

  • Severe weather:
    • Lightning, wind, tornado, blizzard.
    • Extreme rainfall in short periods, long-lived rainfall event, snowmelt + spring storms.
    • Extreme heat + humidity, long-lived event.
    • Extreme cold, prolonged event.
  • Every day:
    • Spare tire, flares, changing weather conditions, car tuned up.
    • Fire extinguisher, keeping children/pets away from stoves, proper food handling protection.
    • Break-ins, online threats, proper insurance coverage.

A general thing you can do inside your home: take pictures and videos of every room in your home.  Get all major purchases, and sentimental items, on film, so, if the worst does happen, you have a record of what and where it was.  Email that file to yourself, so it dates the process, and will get you to update it regularly. 

Another important thing to do:  input our number into your phone or mobile device!  708-430-3600.   We are available 24/7/365, and have the expertise and equipment necessary to handle any size or type of job.
