Know What To Do In An Emergency
The purpose of preparing before a disaster strikes is to ensure the safety of you, your family, and your home in an emergency.
It is in your best interest to prepare for disasters before they strike. There may be a shortage of food, resources, or medical treatment in a serious emergency. By following the instructions of emergency personnel and being as self-sufficient as you can, you will help government officials and emergency personnel to respond to those who are in critical situations.
