    30 Sep 2005

    Flood waters are highly contaminated with E. coli and other health hazards.

  • Death and Disaster

    09 Sep 2005

    Hurricane Katrina has forced us to examine our feelings about death, denial and disaster preparedness. Disasters test our mettle as individuals and a populace. We don’t want to think about the potential for catastrophic events like Hurricane Katrina—and yet they occur. Denial is the No. 1 reason why families fail to purchase disaster kits that contain critical supplies that can increase their chances of survival and save lives.

  • Florida Hurricane Season

    26 Aug 2005

    Florida residents have learned the hard way that denial invites property damage, pain and suffering, and fatalities. They endured four hurricanes last year, which caused almost $50 billion in damage. This year alone, they’ve weathered 11 storms—and it took this double-digit onslaught to convince many Floridians to purchase disaster kits to protect their families, shore up their homes to brave heavy winds, and make a commitment to preplanning and preparation.

  • Emergency Cash

    18 Aug 2005

    Always carry enough emergency cash to cover essential needs for a five-day period. This recommendation is echoed by the Financial Planning Association, a trade group that represents accountants, financial planners, stockbrokers, bankers and other money managers. Many ATMs and banks were shut down after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, the FPA reminds us, and hurricane and tornado victims often experience similar problems.

  • Emergency Food

    15 Aug 2005

    Every family should have a 3-day emergency supply of water and food in their disaster pantry. Assume you’ll be without electricity, gas and the ability to cook. For portability and ease, make sure your disaster kit contains enough food for every family member. You can purchase extra emergency food packs and energy bars(with a 5-year shelf life), as needs dictate. If you’re at work, in your car or on the go, make sure you’ve made similar preparations.
