Always Be Prepared for an Emergency

September 7th, 2012 posted by Angie Barrett

An emergency can happen anytime and anywhere. There are normally no warning sings and emergencies can turn from bad to worse in a matter of moments. Natural disasters, automobile accidents, and health problems are just a fraction of the kinds of emergencies that can spring up at anytime. While you can’t always prevent emergencies from happening, you can be prepared for them! Plan out escape routes in case of a fire and set up a meeting spot with your family. Make sure harmful chemicals are kept out children’s reach. Put together a home First Aid Kit and make sure that everyone in the family knows where it is kept. Learn CPR and make sure that your other family members do as well.
