Hurricane Irma – Proper storm preparation can make a big difference and those preparations should include meds, pets, labels, and waterproof bags.
Online PR News – 11-September-2017 – With mega-hurricane Irma hurtling our way this week, now is the time to find and review your homeowners and automobile insurance policies. Then protect them, as follows:
Do these 2 things right away.
1.First of all, leave right this minute and fill up each of your cars with gas. Remember: gas pumps need electricity to run. And gas stations often run out of gasoline when a hurricane nears.
2.Stock up on strong freezer ZipLoc bags; they provide good protection from water.
Protect your important papers. Use good, strong Ziploc bags to put all the following together NOW:
Your homeowners and automobile insurance policies
Pack up all Prescription Medicines for all members of your household.
Check to make sure that each person in your household has enough of their meds for at least one week, or better.
If you have pets, they will need you now more than ever. Make plans NOW to look after them during the storm. Most shelters allow pet owners to bring their cats and dogs with them, and during emergency situations, some hotels permit your pets to stay with you, as well. Take the time now to.
Dig out that dog kennel or cat carrier that is in the back corner of your garage
A day or two before the storm:
Get $100 to $200 in cash from the bank. With power outages, ATMs and even retail stores cash registers may not be working.
Label everything. Make sure you have some wide, clear packing tape. Make big 3 x 5 labels to tape on everything you are packing.
Your familys last name
Prepare for the worst…
Assume you will have to leave your house in a hurry
Pray for the best.
