Resiliency At Home

Interested in learning about how you can prepare yourself and your family to be more resilient? Here are a few “get prepared” suggestions from the National Safety Council:

  • Secure large appliances and install flexible gas and water connections
  • Anchor top-heavy furniture to the wall and place heavy objects on lower shelves
  • Never hang anything heavy above where you sleep

In addition, we recommend the following to ensure you, your family, and your home are ready when the next natural disaster:

  • Know your finances
  • Back up your data
  • Understand your insurance policy
  • Create a plan (and practice it with your family)
  • Ensure your home is structurally sound (consult with a professional)
