Prepare now for emergencies and disasters

To be prepared for emergencies and disasters, you need to know what to do, where to go, and have enough supplies for a week or more. Supplies include food, water, medications, and important documents. Include supplies for your pets as well.

Preparing in advance can keep you safe and comfortable, and help you get back to your normal life and work more quickly. It also helps others because emergency responders can focus on helping those who need it the most. Individuals and families should be prepared to take care of themselves for at least 72 hours.

The following steps will guide you in building your preparedness plan:

  • Know the risks: Knowing the risks and hazards can help you and your loved ones prepare for the unexpected.
  • Make a plan: A plan will help you cope with the stress of an emergency or disaster.
  • Build a kit: By taking a few simple steps you can become better prepared to face a range of emergencies. Be sure your kit includes a battery-powered/crank radio/flashlight.
