Being prepared for holiday trips
July 2, 2009
US News features a short but worthwhile recap of elements for a good personal disaster plan
. Naturally, items like extra food and water are important to have around the house, as well as copies of important personal documents. But especially as we approach a long holiday weekend, it's important to consider other measures to take for disaster prevention around the home -- like having working sump pumps
(or, even better, battery-backup sump pumps
). And for those who might be in places where electrical power could take a while to be returned to service, electrical generators
are a good option to consider as well.
