Why NBC’s “This Is Us’ hit TV show is an urgent reminder to scan your photos
One outcome of the program was we experienced more new photo scanning order at ScanMyPhotos.com than ever before. The TV show was a powerful call to action to be prepared and digitize family photo memorabilia.
As Time Magazine just reported, “don’t go back into a burning house for anything.” Think of your irreplaceable possessions and the one billion family photos destroyed last year from the Texas flooding and California wildfires. Today, The New York Times also reported on how to preserve your family memories and explained why to scan your photos. Another story we recommend is this “How to Prepare Your Community for a Disaster,” as a helpful primer with smart tips to be prepared. Accuweather’s Ashley Williams also shared this evacuation checklist: “How to get your family out safely in the face of an imminent disaster.”
We received this email from a past client with a story that was both heartbreaking and an uplifting preparedness tip. Fortunately, these pictures were spared from a devastating, total-loss house fire because the customers’ pictures were digitized and saved off-site years prior.
