DO YOU HAVE A FIRE DISASTER KIT?

With fires raging in the region, and high temperatures, and low humidity in the forecast, you should make sure your family and property are protected. Reporter Taylor Thacker tells you how to put together a fire disaster kit…
When fire disasters occur, you will have to plan for two situations: Remaining in your home after a disaster or evacuating to a safer location. Here are some tips to help you create a fire disaster kit. Have a three-day supply of food and water on hand — plan for one gallon of water per person per day and food that won’t spoil. Be sure to gather the following items to ensure your family’s basic comfort and well-being in case of evacuation: cash, radio, blankets, clothing, first aid kit, flashlight, and pet care. Store important documents in a fire and water proof container. Include insurance papers, medical records, bank account numbers, social security cards, deeds, birth and marriage certificates, wills, and recent tax returns. By having these things safe in the event of a fire, you can keep you and your family ready and safe when a disaster strikes.
