ARE YOU READY?
No one likes to think about disasters, but they happen here just like in every other part of the world.
The question is: are you prepared?
MAKE A PLAN
Have a plan for what you and your family will do in an emergency. Consider how you will communicate with each other, where you will meet, and who you can leave messages with out-of-state if you can’t reach people locally.
BUILD A KIT
After you have your plan, start building a kit. The basics include enough food and water to last five to seven days. Then, think about other needs. Make a list of the things you use every day. Don’t worry about buying everything at once.
Stay informed to know when disasters are going to strike. Keep up with information from your local government leaders and media. Don’t just rely on one source — stay informed by using multiple sources of information.
