Emergency Preparedness

EmergencyPreparednessEmergencies disrupt hundreds of thousands of lives every year. Each disaster has lasting effects, both to people and property.  If an emergency occurs in your community, local government and disaster-relief organizations will try to help you, but you need to be ready as well. Local responders may not be able to reach you immediately, or they may need to focus their efforts elsewhere.

You should know how to respond to severe weather or any disaster that could occur in your area—hurricanes, earthquakes, extreme cold, flooding, or terrorism.

You should also be ready to be self-sufficient for at least three days. This may mean providing for your own shelter, first aid, food, water, and sanitation.


Tips to be Prepared

Make sure you know where your local fire department, police station, and hospital are and post a list of emergency phone numbers near all the telephones in your home.

Create an emergency plan for your household, including your pets.

Decide where your family will meet if a disaster does happen: 

  • Right outside your home in case of a sudden emergency, like a fire and
  • Outside your neighborhood in case you can't return home -- ask an out-of-town friend to be your "family contact" to relay messages.

Prepare a 3-day disaster supply kit, complete with flashlights, batteries, blankets, and an emergency supply of prescription medications, water and food (and pet food!).

Should an emergency happen, don't forget to listen to your local radio or television stations for more information.
