Home Evacuation Checklist

Access to new resource related to preparing for a natural disaster added to PM World Library

11 November 2020 – Dallas, TX, USA – A new resource has been added to the PM World Library (PMWL) related to preparing for potential natural disasters such as hurricane’s or tsunamis.  The new resource titled “Home Evacuation Checklist: How to Prepare for an Emergency and What to do During an Evacuation“ is a great resource created by a team led by Cory Towler at Jeff Cook Real Estate in North Carolina, USA.

According to the intro on the website, “The need for home evacuations can arise for many reasons. And they happen much more often than many people even realize. Wildfires and other natural disasters, along with manmade situations like chemical spills, can all lead to evacuations. Since these situations can happen anywhere and at any time, all households benefit from having a plan. A home evacuation plan prepares everyone to quickly leave the home and make it to safety. When fully detailed, it provides all the steps household members need to take to safely exit any room they are in and make their way outside. Then, it covers how to properly leave the area and reach a place to ride out the disaster."

As with any emergency, handling a home evacuation with confidence comes down to being as prepared as possible. With the right preparations, everyone can get to safety without making missteps along the way or getting too stressed. Although there is no way to fully ease stress during an emergency, preparations can help.  So, explore what to do before, during, and after an evacuation to get ready to handle this situation with ease. Also, be sure to take a look at what to bring along for the ride, so you do not leave anything important behind. To get started, use this guide to learn how to prepare to leave your house or the city as needed to stay safe.”

Even if an emergency situation never arises, simply having a plan in place provides immense peace of mind. So, it is well worth the time and effort it takes to make, as disaster could strike at any time."

This resource should be useful to people and organizations located in areas prone to fires, floods, hurricanes, tsunamis, typhoons or other natural disasters, which are increasing each year with climate change.
