A PREPARED COMMUNITY IS A MORE RESILIENT COMMUNITY
Disasters can occur in just a few seconds. Personal preparedness lessens the impact on families, on workplaces and on communities. Local officials and relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster, but they cannot reach everyone immediately.
Make a plan today. Your family may not be together if a disaster strikes, so it is important to know which types of disasters could affect your area. Know how you’ll contact one another and reconnect if separated. Establish a family meeting place that’s familiar and easy to find.
