Our thoughts, our plans and our actions are typically programmed to fit in nicely with our daily routines. We go from activity to activity and from day to day with very little change. Occasionally, new situations arise and we adjust accordingly. But are you ready for a home emergency? An unexpected event occurs that requires immediate and effective action on your part. Read on for some helpful hints and tips.
