Be Prepared

Even though you may not be able to control a disaster or stop it from happening, you do have control over how you and your family will respond. Protecting yourself and your family in an emergency requires planning.  Being prepared will not only help you respond effectively in a dangerous situation, but it can also help you to lessen the impact of a disaster, and sometimes even avoid the danger completely.

Remember, local responders may not be able to reach you immediately, or they may need to focus their efforts elsewhere. Your ability to be self-sufficient may be a matter of survival for both you and your family.  Take control of your own safety - it can save your life!  Below are several resources that will help you to be prepared for many different types of emergencies that can occur.
