Emergency Preparedness

emergency preparedness

If an unexpected disaster occurs are you prepared? Natural disasters can occur in various forms and at any time. While you cannot predict everything, there are measures that can minimize the damage that incurs. We have five tips to help prepare you and your storage unit in case of disaster.

Have a protection plan for your storage unit

  • Our facility offers a protection plan that is designed to cover financial losses of items damaged in natural disasters. Plans can be purchased at our office and can be added into your monthly rent. Do not assume the property’s insurance covers your goods, you are responsible for the protection of your stored goods. For information on protection for your stored goods, please see store manager.

Have an evacuation plan

  • Be sure to know routes on how to get to a safe spot during a disaster. Have a planned meeting stop for family and friends.

Use water-tight bins for your belongings

Storing your goods in bins that are water/airtight allow them to stay safe in case of a flooding disaster or hurricane.

Prepare any temperature sensitive items in your unit appropriately-or rent a temperature controlled unit- in case of extreme low or high temperatures or blizzards

  • Any type of item made from leather, wood, rubber, or metal can be damaged from extreme temperatures. Electronics, documents, and artwork should also be stored in temperature controlled units.

Have emergency light sources 

  • Keep a flashlight or lantern right at your residence, in your car and also inside your unit. If power goes out, make sure you have battery backups for any lighting sources as well. If a visit to your unit during a disaster is necessary, you will want to be able to see in your unit.
