Be prepared

Disaster Preparedness

Disasters are on the rise and offer little to no warning. Blizzards, wildfires, tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, mudslides, and even man-made disasters. In a matter of hours, your whole community can go from everyday life, to chaos – no power, no clean water, inaccessible roads, and empty grocery store shelves.

Prepare your home, business, and family in advance. A few proactive steps can give you the confidence of being ready and reduce stress when it’s time to react.

  • Keep your business up and running with an expert-installed Cat® generator
  • Protect your family and home with backup power
  • Know the emergency supplies to buy up front—they’re not what you think
  • Take the panic out of evacuation
  • And more

Our online resources below can help you prep like a pro.
