How prepared are you for a natural disaster? Are you prepared for a disaster that might not be common in the area where you live? With weather patterns changing and civil unrest popping up where you least expect it, it makes sense to do everything possible to make sure that you can keep yourself and your family as safe as possible in case of an emergency.
One simple thing that many have chosen to do is prepare a go-bag that contains what you need to survive for a few days on the road, as well as copies of documents you might need for identification, and some cash to use. If you are forced to leave your home because of a natural disaster, you can do a few things to minimize the risk of your home being totally destroyed. Shutting off the main water, power and gas lines won’t take a lot of time, and when they are off, you are much less likely to come back to a ruined home.
