Natural disasters may be beyond our control, but there are ways to reduce the risk and the impact of whatever emergency we may encounter.
By taking a few simple steps, you can become better prepared to face a range of emergencies - anytime, anywhere, and it is important to:
- Know the Risks - Although the consequences of disasters can be similar, knowing the risks specific to our community and our region can help you better prepare.
- Make a Plan - It will help you and your family know what to do.
- Make an Emergency Kit - During an emergency, we will all need some basic supplies. We may need to get by without power or tap water. Be prepared to be self-sufficient for at least 72 hours in an emergency.
