Low-Cost, No-Cost Preparedness
In keeping with the National Preparedness Month, I thought I'd put together as much information as I could find on preparing with a budget and ways to prepare ahead of time.
Let's face it, there are things that will ultimately have to be purchased for emergency kits, so planning ahead is something that we can all do and preparing a list of things that you need, and purchasing items weekly can really help with the budget!
Ready.gov has a wealth of information for you regarding ALL of your disaster preparation needs.
You can also visit SERVPRO of Lebanon/Hanover/Littleton's website blog section for disaster related blogs and tons of preparedness information Here.

Emergencies can happen anytime, and less than half of American families have a communication plan. Plan ahead with your family!
