Employees: Be prepared at home
Disaster preparedness at home is easy: make a plan, build a kit and stay informed.
Get your family involved in making a plan. Discuss the types of disasters most likely to occur in your area and why you need to prepare. Assign responsibilities so that you can work together as a team. Disaster preparedness planning can be educational and lifesaving.
Your home preparedness kit should include essential items such as first aid supplies, disposable and heavy-duty work gloves, hand sanitizer, batteries, non-perishable food items, water, a hand-crank radio, an auto safety kit and maps, among others. All of these items are available online and at many retail locations nationwide. Pre-stocked kits are also available for purchase.
