Install smoke alarms in homes and ensure to check them periodically, A fire extinguisher can always come in handy!

The good thing about preparedness is that each member of the family is aware of the plans and precautions, it is also imperative that everyone knows about the dietary or medicinal requirements of each member in the family. An emergency kit should always have the medical supplies should it vary from person to person.

How many of us have been saving for a pair of shoes or are preparing and saving for the new model of phone/car that we intend to purchase? Similarly, we must urge everyone around us to save for "Rainy Days". There are various ways to do so, either by investing in insurances for life and property or by saving money that could be put to use in times of crisis.
