Emergency Prep Tip #1

Today's Blog entry is the first in a series of short informational posts compiled to help YOU, our reader in your pursuit of greater self reliance and peace of mind.

Tip #1 -What if a disaster occurs while on the job? Do you know the emergency preparedness plan for your place of employment? While many employers have been pro-active in preparing for disasters since 911 and hurricane Katrina, a recent national survey indicates that many employees are still unaware of their workplace plan for major or minor disasters. If you don’t know yours, ASK. If perhaps your employer has yet to put a program in place, the plan should consist of: multiple routes in & out of your building, shelter-in-place or evacuate information, plan for both possibilities, know the location (or locations) of emergency & first aid kits and gear, emergency contact information for all employees involved and what possible emergencies might affect your company and location.
