Emergency Preparedness – Is Your Disaster Kit Up to Date?

While aftershocks rattle the Napa Valley area following the 6.0 earthquake that shook Northern California this past weekend, we here in the Pacific Northwest should take a minute to reflect about how prepared we are for the next quake (or other natural disaster) that could happen here.

Follow this link to review the American Red Cross Disaster Kit Supply List. So many of us have our kits in the garage or car, but how many of those kits have expired batteries, old water or out of date documents in them? In addition to your disaster kit, it’s always a good idea to have a disaster plan for your family. You can view the Red Cross Disaster Preparedness Family Plan here.
