How Can Just in Case Help Me?

Just in Case defends you against the evil twins of fear and procrastination. And preparing with Just in Case provides you with peace of mind.

When you hire Just in Case to help you prepare for disasters, our expert will meet with you to conduct an In-Home Readiness Assessment, where we make note of what supplies you already have and make recommendations concerning what more you need. We also assess what you know and what more you need to know to help you through a crisis. Then, we use that information to create a personalized action plan, and coach you through its implementation, step by step.

Why Hire Just in Case?

Customized Service

Our exclusive In-Home Readiness Assessment amounts to a thorough needs analysis that is the heart of our service.

Generic emergency supply kits are readily available for purchase, but how do you know what else you need for your particular family? Just in Case is the only preparedness service that provides face-to-face interaction, resulting in a truly customized supply kit, and a personalized plan of action to keep you and your loved ones safe in the event of a major disaster.

Expert Assistance

A Flee Bag™ (aka, Go Kit or Bug-out Bag) is a portable tote such as a duffle bag, backpack or wheeled suitcase packed with basic emergency supplies.

A properly stocked Flee Bag™ contains (at least) the minimum supplies to get you through 1-3 days following a disaster if your home is left uninhabitable.

In your journey to preparedness, assembling a Flee Bag™ should be your #1 priority. Our experts will tell you exactly what should be in it, and help you build yours.
