Preparing your home and family for an emergency

Emergencies happen, no matter how much you try to avoid them. They can be weather emergencies, fires, floods, and so many different things. It is hard to be prepared for all of them. At Ransom & Associates Insurance Agency in Winder, GA we prepare you for an emergency by making sure you have home insurance that can provide the financial preparation you need. 

Have a plan

When an emergency happens, there is usually chaos. Having a family meeting and formulating a plan ahead of time can lessen the amount of tension and confusion when an emergency happens. An evacuation route is necessary, and it is wise to have more than one option planned in the event that one is not available. The family should also have a meeting spot in the home to gather. 

Stock your home

Having a supply of water in your home, enough for a week. In the event of an emergency, there may not be any potable water, and it is best to be prepared with several cases of water. If you have a septic system that requires electricity, it may be wise to fill the bathtub with water. 

Have a generator

If you live in an area that is prone to emergencies and loss of electricity, a generator is a necessity. It can mean the difference between sitting in a dark house with no electricity and losing all the food in your fridge and freezer and having the power to keep it running. 

Know where the safest spot in your house is

In the event the emergency is a tornado, have a designated spot where you will be as safe as possible.
