How To Plan For An Evacuation

The recent devastating wildfires that cut through a huge portion of the state was a grim reminder that life can change in an instant. Thousands of people were displaced by the wildfires and that meant evacuating with just a moment’s notice. If an evacuation ordered ever came down to you, would you be ready to go? Here are some great tips on how to plan for an evacuation just in case:

Prep Ahead of Time

The more preparation you can do before a natural disaster strikes better off you’ll be. Think about all the things that are important to you that you need to bring with you. All of your important insurance, medical and financial documents should be in one location in the home. You don’t want them scattered across rooms. If you have a small file lockbox, then that’s a good place to put them.

Notify Neighbors

You should definitely let your neighbors know when you are leaving and where used plan on going. They should tell you the same. In severe circumstances, you might even want to put a sign in your window saying something along the lines of “house empty. Occupants evacuated.” This will help first responders if they are searching through the neighborhood. They’ll know to pass over your house.

Shut Off

Before leaving you should take a few moments to unplug any unnecessary appliances, turn off the gas and water supplies at the main switches and turn off all the lights.

Pack an Emergency Kit

Your car should always have a small emergency kit. This can include flashlights with extra batteries, extra power cords for cell phones, protein bars and a first-aid kit. If you have time before the evacuation, then you’ll probably want to also bring extra clothing, blankets and pillows.

Have a Plan

The meeting priority is to get clear of the danger zone. Beyond that, you’ll need to have a plan as to where you’ll be driving to. That will change with each situation but you can count on your local fire department, police station or Red Cross knowing where displaced residents should go. Those will also be the best locations for you to get updates about when you can return to your property.

The most important thing with an evacuation is to go when ordered. Staying behind only puts you and first responders at risk.

Get Your LA Attic Cleared Out Today

There is a development plan involving tunnels and elevators. The idea is that a super highway will be built underground much like a subway system but it will be for actual cars.

A Better Plan For Your Inventory Storeroom

One thing Los Angeles residents can agree on: No matter where you live or work, storage space always seems to be at premium. It fills up fast whether that is your apartment storage bin, your garage or your business’s inventory storeroom. When it comes to your business, that storage space can become a hindrance if it isn’t utilized properly. Here’s how to make it work.warehouse-485240_1280

Draw Out a Good Floor Plan

Even a small storeroom in the back of a restaurant should have a floor plan. This plan can be drawn up, laminated and posted for anyone to see. It should detail where things are on a shelf and which set of shelves. Think of it as a “roadmap” for your staff to follow. It will be very helpful for new staff to follow the map vs. constantly asking where something is.

Set Policies

A big business like Amazon has an automated warehouse with a massive data system that tracks every item. When supplies are low, the supply chain is alerted and arrangements are made to replenish. At lot of this happens automatically. Your business might not have a system like that in place but there can still be policies that establish a supply chain that works best for your company. When you need to reorder an item it crucial and every employee who works in the storeroom should know when to trigger those reorders.

Provide for the Staff

As best as you can, you should try to provide space for your staff to take breaks or hold meetings. You don’t want them sitting on crates in the alley eating their lunch. If a separate breakroom isn’t feasible, then a table with benches can serve the same purpose.

Utilize the Space

This pertains to the concept of what is valuable and what is a loss. Obviously, the bulk of your inventory should be items that are either being sold at a store or shipped to a customer. There will probably also be returned and damaged items that can’t be sold again. Those are the loss items but do you have to hold onto them. Once a record has been made of them, they should be consider rubbish and at that point you’ll want to hire Junk King Los Angeles for a rubbish clearing. Junk King can send over a dedicated team and truck that can handle a relatively large amount of rubbish removal. When the goal is to make more space in your inventory storeroom, you can count on Junk King Los Angeles to be a big help with rubbish removal.

Good Advice For Back-To-School Prep

When it is back-to-school time, everything around the household changes. Even though summer vacation wasn’t technically that long, it was long enough to forget about what it takes to get up, get ready and get out the door for school. Those challenges are in place whether you’re sending a toddler or a teenager off to school. Here is some good advice you can put into place to make your back-to-school transition run smoother:

back-to-school-183533_1280

Identify Priorities

The older the student, the more opportunities for activities that happen outside of school time. Sports, theater, friends, social media and homework all have to find a way to get squeezed into the day. This is when you need to identify your student’s priorities. They can spend time with all of those activities but not at the detriment of grades. TV shows can be recorded and watched later. Friends can wait until the weekend. The focus should be dedicated time each night for homework. After that, the other things can fall into place.

Social Media Cut Off

Speaking of social media, you need to establish some boundaries with regard to Smartphone use. It should probably be shut off during homework time but also during family meals. In fact, no phone should make an appearance at the dinner table! It is also important to set a curfew for social media. It’s not hard to imagine kids staying up all night texting back and forth. If it becomes a real problem, then perhaps the solution is to surrender all devices at bedtime and retrieve them in the morning.

Ask Questions

As the parent, you’re going to want to find out how their school days are going. The classic “How was school today?” and cliché response, “Fine” might not provide the information you’re really seeking. You’ll want to go deeper and ask questions that provoke better answers like “What kind of challenges did you overcome today?” “Who did you help?” “What is your goal for tomorrow?” There might be some grumbling at first but keep pressing until a dialogue happens.

Remove Clutter

Starting the school year is a clean slate for the kids. It should also be a clean slate around the house. The less clutter, the less distractions. Junk King Los Angeles can prove to be a terrific decluttering partner. All those unwanted items from your kid’s closet, dresser, shelves and bedroom can be gathered up and carted away by Junk King. The same goes for every other room in the house. Make this year’s back-to-school prep one that involves no clutter with help from Junk King Los Angeles.

Set Up Price Alerts

Getting a great airline price is a lot like playing the stock market. There are constant changes in prices and you have to know when to jump in. The best way to do that is to set up price alerts for your specific flights. There are a lot of apps that can help with this. You should also sign up for the airline emails. They will often promote special flights with an email blast.

Pack Instant Oatmeal

Many flights have cut back on serving meals but that doesn’t mean you can’t eat. A packet of instant oatmeal and some add in toppings can make a nice breakfast. Just ask for a cup of hot water and you’re good to go.

Ask For Upgrades

All along your travels, you should ask for upgrades. Some might come with reasonable charges. Others might be given to you for free because you’re a nice customer. That actually happens! These upgrades can be on the airline but also at the car rental place and your hotel.

Pack a Laundry Bag

Going on vacation isn’t the time to bring your closet with you. A smart packer will pack an outfit for each day.

That will keep them separate from the clean clothes yet to be worn.
