Disaster Preps: Week 15

You'll likely have some of this week's items around the house, so look around before heading out to buy!

Weekly Purchases:
  • Extra batteries
  • Masking tape
  • Hammer
  • Assorted nails
  • Wood screws
  • "L" brackets to secure furniture to walls
Action Items:
  • Brace shelves and cabinets, and secure tall, heavy furniture to the walls for support.  This will help keep them upright in an emergency.
  • October 7-13 is National Fire Prevention Week.  Test your smoke detectors and practice your home fire escape plans.  Take a minute and stop by your local fire station to thank the firefighters who are away from their families.
