LTRVD0333 RV Disaster Preparedness

Be A Workamper

This week’s theme is RV Disaster Preparedness as it is National Disaster Preparedness month.

One of our emails starts us off on the contents of the RVer’s “Go Bag” to take to a shelter when you have to leave your RV.

Then we get into RV Safety as it pertains to Weather Safety. We discuss weather radios and how to program them with SAME, or Specific Area Message Encoding data. These are 6 digit numbers available at the NOAA website


Next up for RV Disaster Preparedness is Fire Safety, and we use lot of material from our friend Mac the Fire Guy

We repeat this information annually with updated information. It could save your life and your family as well.
