Get PREPared! --- Make a Plan
Disaster can strike quickly and without warning. It can force you to evacuate your neighborhood or confine you to your home. What would you do if basic services--water, gas, electricity or telephones--were cut off? Local officials and relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster, but they cannot reach everyone right away. Therefore, the best way to make your family and your home safer is to be prepared before disaster strikes.
February Tip: It is very important to be proactive rather than reactivewhen an emergency arises. The more PREPared you are, the more you can help yourself and others.
Ask yourself…what have you done to PREPare?
