Every area of the United States is susceptible to one form of disaster or another, and even in non-flood areas, rains can still cause an excess amount of moisture. Any home with gas or electrical appliances can become the victim of a fire. With such prevalent dangers, it is vital you prepare your home and your family for disaster by developing an escape plan, understanding the implications of each catastrophe, and knowing who to call when tragedy strikes. Disaster preparation is essential to survival
The three main disasters are floods, fires, and mold. They each take a toll on the property in a different way and require a unique response from the individuals inside the house to survive. While fires and floods can come on strong, ripping through the building before much action can be take, mold needs approximately 24 hours to become a real threat.
You should have at a fire escape plan that shows everyone in the house where the nearest exits are, and any fire-retardants, such as a hose or fire extinguisher. Always consider the safety of humans first. Once outside and safely away from the flames, call the fire department.
