June is here, and we are so lucky to live on the Gulf Coast during the summer months! We have so much to enjoy this time of year: fishing, boating, local seafood, beautiful beaches… but with those luxuries come the one thing that can totally ruin your summer – hurricane season.
Leo Calagaz joined us on Studio10 to help make sure you are prepared for when disaster strikes.
When you evacuate your home, one thing that's hard to bring with you is all your family photos. But those memories are definitely some of the most important things in your house.
With that in mind, here are some tips on how you can preserve those photos and other things you can do to get ready for potential storms:
*Scan all of your family photos & photo albums
*Scan all of your important documents too!
*Include CDs of your scanned family photos in your Disaster Supplies Kit.
*Order extra copies of your scanned photos/documents and send to family members who don't live on the Gulf Coast for safekeeping.
*Have a battery back-up for your cell phone – Calagaz has a couple of options that will work on your cell phone and camera… or any USB device.
To help with what some would consider a daunting task, Calagaz is offering a Hurricane Season Shoebox Scanning special for the month of June. Don't wait until there is a hurricane looming in the Gulf! Now is the time to get started on this project so you're ready when the time comes.
Shoebox scanning - $40 off any size box (reg. $89.99 and $129.99)
CD Duplication special - $10 for each additional copy (reg. $20)
