Making sure your home is prepared for an emergency

Nobody likes to think about an emergency happening at their home, but being prepared makes it much easier to deal with. There isn’t any way to predict every possible emergency that could happen, but there are some major ones that you can be prepared for. At Brent Davis Insurance in Allen, TX we take the responsibility of making sure our customers have the perfect coverage seriously. We make sure we get to know you before making suggestions.

Lots of different sorts of emergencies can cause problems at your home. One of the most serious is fire. Making sure that you have working smoke detectors is vital. Batteries need to be changed every six months. If you have a fireplace, it should be cleaned every year to lessen the risk of fire in your home.

You should have a home inventory and it should be stored in a safe place that will allow it to survive an emergency. You need to have a fire-proof and water-proof storage container to hold all of your important papers and if you must evacuate your home, you can take it with you. Having the important papers in a safety deposit box is also not a bad idea with a copy in the cloud.

You need to have a plan for any emergency that could happen. Having an evacuation rehearsal is a good idea. Make sure every member of the family knows where you should gather in the event of an emergency. Have an evacuation route in case there is flooding or a tornado. Have a generator or backup power in the event you lose electricity. An emergency kit with batteries, water, and snacks is a good idea.
