Families can – and do – cope with disaster by preparing in advance and working together as a team.
Follow the steps listed in this brochure to create your family’s disaster plan.
Knowing what to do is your best protection and your responsibility.
Your family will cope best by preparing for disaster before it strikes.
One way to prepare is by assembling a Disaster Supplies Kit.
Once disaster hits, you won’t have time to shop or search for supplies.
But if you’ve gathered supplies in advance, your family can endure an evacuation or home confinement.
