Disasters come in many forms; explosions, hurricanes, tornadoes, and others. Being prepared can reduce fear, anxiety, and losses that accompany these disasters. Individuals, families, and communities should know what to do in the event of a fire and where to seek shelter during a tornado. Knowing what to expect and how to prepare makes any crisis more manageable.

Take these three simple steps to prepare --
Get a Kit - Assemble a collection of first aid supplies, food, water, medicines, and important papers that can sustain you and your family until the emergency passes.
Make a Plan - You and your family members may not be together when an emergency strikes. Planning ahead will improve your chances of keeping in touch, staying safe, and quickly reuniting.
Be Prepared - Anticipate emergencies most likely to affect you and your family. This guide will help you think through the basics of preparing yourself and your family for all hazards.
