In Case Of Emergency: Are You Prepared?

Snow, ice, power outages.  Oh my.  Winter weather hit the Portland Metro area hard last week.  If you found yourself rummaging in the dark for working flashlights and panicking while your cell phone slowly died, you are not alone.  According to the Center For Disease Control and Prevention, half of adults in the US do not have plans in place in case of emergency.  

Being in a stressful situation impacts our problem solving skills, but now, as the ice melts and power is restored, calmer heads can prevail.  With last week’s events fresh in our memories, now is he perfect time now to prepare for any future emergencies.  Here’s an emergency supply checklist to get you started. 

Having good insurance coverage is critical, especially when emergencies do occur. Contact the team at Elliott, Powell, Baden, and Baker we will help you find the right insurance coverage to fit your needs.

It is well known that supporting local non profits is a core value of Elliott, Powell, Baden and Baker Insurance.  So when Portland Business Journal wanted to promote the tremendous need for charitable giving in our community, they reached out to EPB&B President Marc Baker for his call to action.  

“Community philanthropic support is vital to making our community a viable place to visit, work and call home,” Baker says. “Whether it be time, money or resources, I encourage everyone to give what they can and together we can make a big impact on our community.”

Thank you Marc for your words of inspiration in today’s edition of   Portland Business Journal.
