Angie’s List to the Rescue: Free Consumer Survival Guide Covers Home, Auto, Property – even Pets

INDIANAPOLIS, September 2, 2015 – Angie’s List is celebrating National Preparedness Month by offering a free guide for homeowners to help them navigate dozens of common emergencies.

Got a bat in the house? Smell a gas leak? Flooded basement? We’ve got you covered with helpful do-it-yourself steps and tips to which service pro you need if you don’t want to go it alone.

But wait, there’s more!  Angie’s List covers more than 720 categories of service, so we’ve covered life, pet and auto emergencies, too. Cat in a tree? Lock yourself out? Victimized by identity theft? Crash your car? We can help.

There’s even a handy, downloadable document you can use to make a list you don’t have to check twice to find essential, reliable help fast.

“Every homeowner has been faced with an issue he or she could easily panic over, whether it’s an exploding toilet, a tree on the roof or my favorite, the ol’ bat in the bathtub,” said Angie’s List founder Angie Hicks. “This information and the emergency contact sheet can help you go from making an already bad situation worse.”

The Angie’s List Survival Guide is available on the national e-commerce marketplace and consumer reviews service, along with the Help in a Hurry one-pager that gives you contact information for the appropriate professional rescue team.
