Whether or not you’re being impacted by Hurricane Sandy this week, take this as reminder to make sure you have an emergency kit and an emergency plan in place with your family.
Take a look at what you should have in your stash with our emergency supplies checklist. Then, to make sure your family is truly prepared, pick a low-key weekend to do a dry run.

That way you’ll be ready in the event of an actual emergency.
