Getting Back Home
What happens when the disaster you’ve been preparing for happens when you’re not home? Have what you need - away from home - so you can get back to the ones you love most.
Preparing Your Home is Only Half the Battle
You can spend a lot of time preparing your home in case of emergencies or disasters and get your family ready to evacuate should the need arise. But the truth is, none of that will help you if the emergency you're preparing for happens while you are away from home. Being prepared with “away from home” emergency plans and kits can provide you and your family with much needed supplies and helpful items in what could be a difficult situation.
There are many disasters or emergencies that could keep you stranded where you are:
- severe weather
- massive earthquake
- devastating fire
- police-ordered lockdown
- ...just to name a few.
