Be Prepared

The time to prepare for a disaster is before the disaster happens!

Test your Readiness IQ

Are you ready to leave your home at a moment’s notice? Consider…

  • Do you have a Disaster Supply Kit with water, food and medicine in a designated place in your home?
  • What about a small kit with emergency supplies in your car?
  • Do you have a family communications plan, such as walkie-talkies, in case land and cell phone lines are down?
  • Have you practiced or drilled on what to do in an emergency at home?
  • Have you and your family agreed upon a specific meeting place in the event you’re evacuated or become separated from friends and family?
  • Finally, have you taken first aid training such as CPR in the last five years?
