1. Have An Escape Plan. Whether you are talking about a state evacuation plan or simply how to easily get out of the apartment, you should always encourage your tenant to have an escape plan. Things like fires can happen in the blink of an eye and it can be difficult to think in the moment if you have not prepared for it. Although in an emergency like a fire there is nothing you can do to help your tenant, it certainly doesn't hurt to have them think about what they can do if these things were to occur.
2. Have an Emergency Kit. One of my friends who has a few rental properties always includes an emergency kit when a new tenant moves in. This consists of extra batteries, a hand powered radio, a first aid kit, emergency numbers, and a few other things. While none of them have ever been needed, thankfully, most tenants take them along when they move due to how important having these things on hand is. Many landlords like to give their tenants moving in a small gift, but something like this is often far more appreciated than anything else due to its practical nature. Having these kits also may help the tenant to think of what they will need to purchase if they leave it when they move.
We never want to think about what we would do in an emergency, but it is something that really does need to be considered. Having a plan is half of the battle when it comes to keeping yourself and your loved ones safe. These are only two ideas to help you prepare for these disasters, but they are a good place to start.
