StorageCraft is more than a company trying to protect your data. We also believe strongly in helping the community prepare for emergencies to ensure the safety and well-being of people in the path of disaster.

That’s why StorageCraft encourages you to become a “Force of Nature” by pledging that you’ll prepare for disasters and work towards informing yourself and others during National Severe Weather Preparedness Week (March 3-9) sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Check out the public service announcement below.

The first thing you can do is take the free readiness pledge. By pledging, you become a part of National Preparedness Coalition and show members of the community that when it comes to disasters, you’re ready and willing to learn, prepare, and share what you know. Members of the coalition also gain access to exclusive resources and have the ability to connect with others who have made the pledge.

The site also provides free resources on planning for and informing yourself about emergencies and potential threats, including things like how to make a disaster plan, how to build disaster preparedness kits, and even how to protect your business.

It’s important to think about disasters and prepare for them ahead of time and it’s wise to take the time to learn more about which disasters might affect your area and how to plan for them, so take some time to pledge today.
