Spring in Coppell…Time to Plan in Case of a Natural Disaster

Springtime in Coppell hopefully brings rain and new growth. Unfortunately, it’s also the time of storms and possibly a disaster. The time to plan for such an event is now. Here are a few things you should do to be prepared if a disaster hits Coppell, Lewisville, Carrollton or other nearby surrounding areas:

Review your insurance policy to be sure you have sufficient coverage.

Create a safety plan for your family which should include an evacuation plan that tells everyone where to go and how to keep in touch during an emergency.

If you own a business, write a business continuity plan that outlines what you will do and who you can call on to keep your business running in the event of a disaster.

Build a content inventory to document the items in your home or at your business.

Prepare a survival kit of things you might need if disaster strikes.

Perform routine maintenance such as tree-trimming, gutter cleaning and debris removal around your home or office building. Make sure drains and sump pumps are clear.

Be ready before the storm hits!
