What would you do if you were forced to leave your home on short notice due to a flood, fire or other emergency? Do you have a plan? Would you have a safe place to go? Have you practiced emergency evacuation with your family? The questions and scenarios are endless. The key to survival is preparedness. Fact of the matter is, most people are not only under prepared but have no emergency plan at all. There is no excuse to not be prepared for an emergency, whatever it may be.
