Developing a family disaster plan and implementing it will empower you to conquer and control your fears about the threat of a major disaster to you and your loved ones as well as ease the frustrations that come with bridge closures or commute delays due to accidents.


We believe that focusing on just one emergency preparedness measure each month will move you towards the peace of mind that comes because you know you've got your bases covered. We're not fanatics! We're your neighbors! And we know how lengthy lists of emergency preparedness measures can seem overwhelming and expensive. That's why we developed our 12-Month Emergency Preparedness Program (E-Prep) to be both affordable and easy to implement.


We believe that emergency preparedness is a mindset and an on-going way of life. Being prepared gives you options and puts resources at your disposal before, during and after any disaster or emergency situation that will increase your odds of survival or raise your level of health and comfort.


We believe that helping your neighbors prepare for an emergency and identifying and organizing your neighborhood resources is one of the best ways to insure your own survival after a major disaster strikes. And it just might help re-create a sense of "neighborhood" that seems to have gotten lost in recent decades.

PREPARE. . . . .because you care about your loved ones
