Keeping Safe and Being Prepared #BepreparedON

With the devastation of the Tornado that hit in Oklahoma, I thought it would be a good time to talk to you all about being prepared and ready if you should find yourself within reach of a Tornado or any other type of natural disaster.

It’s always great to have a plan in case anything occurs. Of course, it’s better said than done, you still want to be prepared. For my family I’ve put together a box of things that we may need and have it located in our cold room down in our basement. I have first aid kit along with a case of water, a few food goods, blankets, battery operated flash lights, candles, a change of clothes for each family member and a few other things as well as copies of our birth certificates in a small little case I have for identification.

Not only do I have this in my cold room, but I also have this in each vehicle we own. You never know what can happen while being on the road, especially in the Winter.

Insured losses  from natural disasters in Canada are now near a billion dollars a year, according to Insurance Bureau of Canada (IBC). Those of us that live in Southern Ontario or Southern Quebec, have a greater risk at being struck by a Tornado so being prepared in case anything should happen is a must.

The best thing to have for your family is a 72 hour emergency kit that includes items you may need in case anything should happen. Your kit should include water, non-perishable foods,  battery-powered radio, flashlight, extra batteries, first aid kit, sturdy shoes for each family and more.
