Almost by definition an emergency is something you didn’t see coming – which means they’re difficult to prepare for. Just think about the impact would an ice storm, blizzard, prolonged power outage, fire, flood, or other disaster might have on you and your family. It’s important to know the risks, have a plan, and be prepared with an emergency kit for your home and your car – and to take it with you in case of an evacuation.
