Getting families and businesses ready for emergencies

Disasters can change your life in mere seconds, turning everything upside down.  We are living this right now as we maneuver our way through our new normal with COVID19.  Making sure you, your family and pets are properly prepared for a disaster can make a world of difference in how you get through the disaster and how you survive in the aftermath.

Preparing For Disasters can be Overwhelming! 

  • How do I connect with my family if we are not together and cellphones are down?
  • How do I make my home safe?
  • What supplies do I need?
  • What do I do if I am at work?
  • How do I get home if roads and bridges are damaged?
  • Where do I store my supplies?
  • What about my kid’s schools and daycares – will they be safe?
  • Where do we go if evacuated?
Jackie Kloosterboer Disaster Specialist

Hi, I'm Jackie Kloosterboer

I conduct presentations for organizations and groups that want their people to be prepared when disaster strikes to keep them safe at all times.

In addition, I work with families that want to protect their loved ones, including their pets, to ensure a speedy recovery in times of need.

In fact, I am the author of My Earthquake Preparedness Guide.

As a result of my work, people often share they are more prepared and have peace of mind knowing they are prepared when unexpected events happen.

On a personal note, I love to travel, and when at home in White Rock, I love to hike the many nearby trails through the forests and on the beaches.
