Emergencies happen. That’s why it’s always best to be prepared. Remember those “In the event of an emergency; break glass” signs that lead to a fire extinguisher? It’s similar to that. You don’t expect (nor do you want) a fire, but if it happens, you should be ready. Being proactive saves valuable time, resources, and most importantly, can save lives.
