Make a Plan
Disasters often strike quickly and without warning.  A disaster can force you to evacuate your home or office, separate you from your family and affect your access to every day necessities like food, water and electricity.
Making a plan for your family and business is essential to answering questions like:
            
            Where do I go if I can't find my family members?
            What do we do if we don't have water or electricity?
            How quickly can my business re-open?
