Preparing your home for an emergency

Emergencies come in many forms. The emergencies you face in Arizona are not necessarily the same as those faced by someone in New England or even California. At Alliance Insurance Partners in Scottsdale, AZ, we know our customers and insurance. We will ensure you are prepared no matter what you face. 

In Scottsdale, AZ, some of the emergencies you may face are dust storms, wildfires, and monsoon storms. 


The first thing you can do to prepare your home to defend against wildfire is to ensure you have created a space around your home to defend it against fire. Choose your landscaping carefully to include things that won’t add fuel to the fire and keep piles of wood away from your home. Have a bag packed to make a fast getaway, and have your essential papers in a fireproof box you can grab and take. 

Dust Storms

It is not unusual to have several dust storms in a desert landscape every year. Make sure your outdoor furniture is secured, close all your doors and windows, and make sure your shades or blinds are closed. Turn off the air conditioning until the storm has passed if you can. 

Monsoon Storms

When thunderstorms are coming, unplug your expensive electronics. If it isn’t too hot, turn off the AC and ensure you don’t have tree branches that overhang your home. Avoid using plumbing while lightning is happening. 

For any emergency, ensure you have bottled water on hand and food that doesn’t require cooking.
