According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), three elements of good preparation are:
- Being Informed - Learn about the potential emergencies that can happen where you live and know the appropriate ways to respond to them.
- Making a Plan – Your family may not be together when disaster strikes, so it is important to plan what you would do in different situations. How would you get to a safe place? How would you contact one another and get back together?
- Building a Kit – Find a list of suggested items to include in an emergency supply kit.
Taking these steps could help you and your family in the event of an emergency.
If you’ve been affected by recent natural disasters, resources are available to help you recover from fire or flood damage. Visit USA.gov for current disaster recovery information, like how to apply for disaster assistance, and information to help you recover and rebuild.
