Why You Need A Plan

“A land of natural hazards…America is riddled with fault lines and bordered by storm-tossed oceans, with two great north-south mountain ranges but none running east-west to keep Arctic air from flowing south and tropical air from going north. There are hurricanes in the Southeast and nor’easters in the Northeast; tornadoes on the lower Plains and blizzards on the upper Plains; earthquakes and volcanoes along the Pacific Coast, which also is vulnerable to tsunamis; sinkholes and lightning in Florida; avalanches in the Rockies and flash floods in the Appalachians; hail from Minnesota to Texas and ice storms from Wyoming to Maine; lake-effect snow from the Great Lakes and the Great Salt Lake; and monsoons in Arizona.” – Rick Hampson, USA TODAY

If all of that weren’t enough, add wildfires, “super storms,” volcano eruptions, explosions, and home fires.

You need a plan. Everyone needs a plan. Make your plan now!
