New Year - Time to Check Your First Aid Kit & to Review Your Family/Business Emergency Plan

Posted by

This is a great time to look through your first aid kits contents & check dates on those items that have an expiration date. After you get a list of items to replace that have expired and see what items you are low on, purchase more of the items and choose the best items that fit your needs the best.

If you don't have an emergency plan in place, put one together. It doesn't have to be complicated. You can set up a place outside of your house/building where you will meet up in case of a fire or if you need to evacuate the house/building for any reason. It's also a great idea to have a meeting spot away from the house to meet up if something bigger happens. Make sure you all agree on the location. 

Weather emergencies are important to plan ahead for. Making sure you have candles (& matches or a lighter) for light if the electricity goes out, extra supply of drinking water, non-perishable food, and extra blankets to keep warm if the furnace goes out, just to name a few of the things you can do to be more prepared for a weather emergency.
