Personal Disaster Kit Update

by | Jun 3, 2022 | FREE Downloads, Gary's Blog

We are officially in the midst of tornado season here in the Midwest, which means it is time to review the contents of personal disaster kits.  Not only is it an EOP requirement for teachers in Ohio to have a disaster kit in their classrooms, I encourage all of my clients to keep an up-to-date disaster kit at home, too.

Whether you live in the Midwest and are affected by tornado season, along a coast that braces for hurricane season, or in elevations where blizzards frequently occur, being prepared for natural disasters should remain a priority.   Practicing effective emergency preparedness begins at home.

Review the contents of your kit annually with your students, staff, and / or family.  Be sure your family members know how to shut off the water and natural gas to your home, too.
