It was big news recently that people in the Chicago area heard the tornado sirens go off on the evening of June 13th. Fortunately a tornado didn’t hit, but this possibility seems to be happening more frequently. Besides major natural disasters, a leaky roof or failed sump pump can cause flooding. House fires cause destruction somewhere daily. Imagine if natural or personal disaster hit your home. After getting your loved ones and pets to safety, what would you hope to save? Most people choose the family photo collection. Digitize your old printed photos and backup your entire collection using the 3, 2, 1 backup rule: Always keep 3 copies of your photos and videos, on 2 different media, with 1 stored off site. Refresh your backups monthly, including all of your family’s digital devices (computers, phones, tablets, digital cameras, etc.). This will ensure your precious memories are safe and secure.
