Family Disaster Plan
Disaster Supply Kit>
Preparedness Starts With You
When a disaster strikes,
will you and your family be ready? You could be at work, at
school, in the car or in another state. Will you know how to find
each other? Is your family safe? Has transportation been
arranged for family members with access and functional needs?
Disasters disrupt hundreds
of thousands of lives every year. Each disaster has lasting effects,
both to people, property and communities. If a disaster
occurs, local emergency management personnel and disaster-relief
organizations will respond, however you need to be prepared. Local
first responders and emergency services may not be able to reach you
You need to be
self-sufficient for at least three days. This means providing for
your own first-aid, food, heat, sanitation, shelter, and water.
Prepare and practice a personal or family disaster plan.
