Preparing Makes Sense! Emergency situations can happen everyday and whether they are simple or complex, everyone needs to prepare their home and workplace. Disasters can occur naturally (earthquake, fire, etc.), intentionally (people-caused - hazardous materials spills, terrorism, etc.), or from technology glitches (power outage, computer viruses, etc.). We need to be prepared to take care of ourselves and our family for a minimum of 7-10 days.

A four phase approach will help prepare you for a natural or any other type of disaster.

1. Get a Kit of Emergency Supplies
2. Make a Plan for What You Will Do in an Emergency
3. Be Informed About What Might Happen. Know the hazards and other concerns in your community.
4. Get Involved in Preparing Your Community
