It can be devastating when your family is affected by a natural disaster and with Hurricane season coming up, it can bring back the fear of getting harmed or having property destroyed. That is why one of the things a family should do is keep a well-stocked disaster-supply kit in a place that makes it easy to grab and go. Stock the kit with bottled water and ready-to-eat, non-perishable foods, a weather radio,traveler’s checks or cash, important papers, first-aid items, personal hygiene items, blankets, extra clothes and shoes.Another thing is to create evacuation plans, especially when local authorities issue mandatory evacuation orders.
Make a room-by-room inventory, as well as photographs or video of personal
belongings can save a lot of headaches – or heartaches – should a catastrophe strike.Take an easy, old-fashioned approach with pen and paper to write down the items in a
home. Take a digital-approach by using an app or software called Digital Locker, available
