Earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, flooding, tsunamis – there are so many risks faced each day by residents of the Sunshine State. To prepare for such dangers you need to be always on your toes and put together a portable emergency pack. You should also check and ensure you have sufficient California home insurancecoverage.
Creating a disaster kit may not be as difficult as you think. All you have to do is gather together the supplies you may need in an emergency. What sort of items should you include? Water and food supplies should be considered non-negotiable. When collecting these supplies, it is smart to remember two things: one, you have to carry the pack so it should not be overly heavy and two, you may not have modern cooking conveniences available so everything should be ready to eat and nonperishable.
The typical pack should also include flashlights along with extra batteries, a battery-powered radio, a small sum of money in bills and quarters, a map, and a change of clothes. It is also important to include copies of your important documents such as your birth certificate and social security card. Remember, you may not be at home when disaster strikes, so having an identical kit in your car or at work is a sound idea.
In all your emergency packs should be a copy of your California home insurance policy. This can help ensure you have what you need to get the claim process rolling after a calamity.
