Essential tools for disaster recovery

Essential tools for disaster recovery: "
This list was submitted by Adam Grundleger. He says, “This list is by no means all-inclusive, but it’s what I can remember from being through hurricanes and heavy storms.” Bad weather and natural disasters never seem to take a vacation, and having the right tools can make a huge difference in how quickly a home and family recover. Thanks, Adam, for a great list! I think it will come in handy when shopping for birthdays and Christmas!
