IRVINE, Calif.— Expanding on the theme of National Preparedness Month (NPM), ScanMyPhotos.com is issuing an urgent recommendation encouraging people to take action and prepare for emergencies year-round. NPM is a nationwide effort sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security’s Ready Campaign to increase awareness for preparing and to effectively deal with emergencies and natural disasters.
ScanMyPhotos.com, is urging people to have their analog photo snapshots scanned and backed up.
During National Preparedness Month and all-year long, ScanMyPhotos.com president and CEO, Mitch Goldstone, said, “Beyond gathering survival items when preparing for natural disaster emergencies, such as fires, hurricanes or earthquakes, think about protecting irreplaceable items in the home.”
While insurance may cover replacement of possessions that have monetary value, how are you protecting items of emotional value? Those shoeboxes of family photos tucked away are often overlooked until it is too late.
What is your backup plan?
According to ScanMyPhotos.com, the top six reasons to backup your photo memories are:
1) Offsite storage in case of a natural disaster. 2) Family divorce or relationship separations (duplicate copies solve ownership issues) 3) Halt ongoing fading and discoloration of your older analog pictures. 4) Easy sharing of photo reprints with others. 5) Making treasured photo gifts for anniversaries, birthdays and more. 6) Sharing stories and journaling to give a real ‘face’ for family tree genealogy projects.
“Preparing for a natural disaster is a year-round imperative,” explains Goldstone who said, “In an instant, when disaster strikes, you risk losing precious photo memories. Family photographs document our lives in a way that material items cannot. Once those photos are destroyed, that part of the family history is lost forever. Family photos can also be ‘lost’ due to neglectful storage, sun exposure and actual time. There is an urgency to preserve your analog photos before facing a possible natural disaster emergency.”
The daunting task of individually scanning each picture has been replaced with ultra-fast and affordable bulk photo scanning using Kodak technology and performed by photo imaging industry professionals with same day return. Your photos are digitally scanned and saved onto DVDs allowing you multiple off-site backups.
ScanMyPhotos.com provides secured Extreme Backup to archive all your images. Its menu of hundreds of other photo imaging gift and sharing items are posted on its Web site.
