Emergency situations such as fire, extreme weather and power outages can happen without warning. By taking the time toprepare for a possible disasternow, you and your family will be equipped to handle a crisis if one ever occurs.
Fire Escape Route and Meeting Spot It can take a mere five minutes for a fire to engulf your entire home. This is one reason having anescape planis so important. Include at least two exit routes in your plan in case one is blocked, and designate a safe location for everyone in your household to meet. Identifying a secondary location outside your neighborhood is good to have in the event it's not safe to return or you're asked to evacuate.
List of Emergency Contacts Make laminated cards with a list of important phone numbers for each family member. This might include contact information for the local authorities and emergency services as well as your nearest relatives.
Home Safety Items Be prepared in case an emergency does occur by having thesehome safety items:
Fire Extinguisher-- Keep one on each floor, and check them annually to make sure they're functioning properly.
First-Aid Kit-- Store it in a central location, such as the kitchen, and make sure everyone knows where it is.
Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors-- Install detectors in each room and test them once a month. Use long-life lithium batteries to cut back on replacements.
Food and Water-- Put together a three-day supply of nonperishable foods and at least three gallons of water for each member of your household.
There's often very little time to react in a crisis. But with a littleplanning and prep work, you can be well-equipped and ready to respond accordingly.

"I am now a first time home owner thanks to David Olson. David helped me every step of the way. I never really knew what was all entailed in the process, although he walked me through every step. I feel going above and beyond. After looking at about 15 different houses, we finally got an alert on my current home hitting the market. David called and we were able to get in and see it immediately although there was already a line. Well immediately we put in a offer and after a few nail biting days I got the call that the offer was accepted.. From there David explained the next steps in detail, set up closing, arranged for slight remodeling and improvements to be made to the home before move in. Everything seemed so easy and went so well I have and will continue to highly recommend David Olson." Ramona M. "Very knowledgeable and friendly. Flexible schedule and easy to get a hold of. Quick, honest responses are always what you get from Dave. Definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy and/or sell." "
