Disaster Preparedness

Ever heard the phrase, "knowledge is half the battle?" Well, that couldn't be more true when it comes to surviving a natural disaster. Natural disasters such as earthquakes, tornados, flood, fire and extreme weather conditions affect millions of people every ear. To protect yourself, your family and your community you should first know what your risks are and then prepare accordingly.

Being able to recognize a natural disaster ahead of time, and knowing what to expect, will help you prepare to protect yourself and your family and aid recovery after the hazard has past.

Some of the more obvious things you can do to prepare for an impending hazard, such as creating an emergency supplies kit and developing an emergency response plan, are going to be the same for all types of emergencies. However, each natural disaster is unique and knowing exactly what you should do for each threat will impact the preparations you make and improve your ability to protect yourself, your family and your community.
