Emergencies can occur anytime in Marietta, GA, or anywhere else. If you use or live in an RV, it’s especially important that you have the things you need to deal with an emergency should one arise. At the LG Insurance Group, we believe you should have a plan of action for some of the more common types of emergencies, but here are some items you should have on hand that can help in most emergencies.
1. First Aid Kit
Your first aid kit will help you treat any minor injuries until you can find proper care. Your kit should have bandages, gauze, antiseptic, pain relievers, and other basics that facilitate cleaning and bandaging wounds or mitigating illness. Also, include any personal medications or items unique to you and those in the RV.
2. Fire Extinguisher
If a fire breaks out, you’ll want something that can quickly contain it. Please have at least one fire extinguisher and ensure everyone knows how to use it.
3. Emergency Radio and Communication Device
Keep a radio that can receive broadcasts and alerts. If possible, use a radio with additional features, such as solar power, a flashlight, or anything else that adds to its usefulness in an emergency. Also, keep a two-way radio, cell phone, or satellite phone.
4. Emergency Roadside Assistance Kit
Have a kit for dealing with common mechanical issues. For example, keep tow straps, jumper cables, a tire inflator, a spare tire, flares, and other roadside assistance tools.
5. Survival Kit
This kit can consist of things you may need to survive, such as non-perishable food, water, blankets, matches, a compass, flashlights, batteries, a map, and other items you may need if you’re stranded somewhere. Also, keep a basic toolkit with commonly used tools.
6. RV Insurance
After an emergency, you’ll want to make sure you have the coverage necessary to repair or replace anything you lost or lost access to. In addition, you’ll have to consider the damage to the RV itself and, more importantly, any injuries sustained because of the emergency.
For all these emergency items, you can usually find pre-built kits. For your RV insurance needs in Marietta, GA, contact us, the LG Insurance Group, to learn more.
