When the unthinkable happens, it usually happens when you least expect it and are not prepared for it. Who could ever expect to have their entire house ravaged by a tornado? If you have an unused generator sitting in your garage, you probably bought it after dealing with a prolonged blackout.

And while you might struggle to get a campfire going, you’d be surprised how fast a fire can travel through your neighborhood. The point is, disasters can happen quicker than any of us usually feel prepared for. It’s understood that we can’t fully prepare for an attack from Mother Nature — but while natural disasters can happen unexpectedly, it’s still a good idea to prepare in advance as much as possible.

One day, the beautiful old oak tree in your yard might decide to become a part of the living room. It’s important to be ready for action if that unfortunate event should happen.

Assess Your Situation
