Developing a plan of action is important in the event of an emergency. September is National Preparedness Month and Survive-a-Storm is supporting this effort by encouraging everyone to make an emergency plan. Family emergency plans are simple to make, but can make a big difference in how emergency situations are handled.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) sponsors National Preparedness Month and has great online resources for families to use to help form emergency plans. Some of the printable information forms include spaces for personal information as well as spots for neighborhood and regional meeting places. Some of the great ideas on these forms include naming an out-of-state contact that every family member calls or texts in the event of an emergency. The kid-friendly printable lists information that would help children in an emergency situation and encourages children to learn their parents’ cell number as well as the one at home.
So what is your family’s plan for a safe place?
This family chose a Survive-a-Storm Shelter Extreme model as their safe place plan to be when a tornado strikes.
Survive-a-Storm safe rooms and storm shelters are great options to keep you and your loved ones safe throughout many types of emergencies. Our safe rooms and shelters are made with pride using the best American steel in the industry. We have a wide variety of models from which to choose and are sure we can help you find the one that best fits your needs. Some of our models can fit securely in the corner of a garage and can be installed within a couple of hours. Survive-a-Storm safe rooms and storm shelters are great places to store emergency preparedness kits as well as your family’s valuables.
Remember, the best time to make a plan is before an emergency strikes. Purchasing a Survive-a-Storm safe room or storm shelter is the most important step in that process.
