Disasters disrupt thousands of lives every year, leaving behind lasting effects on people and property. After a disaster, many others in your community need help as well. For this reason, local first responders and other assistance may not be able to reach you right away. You and your family can take simple steps now to prepare for emergencies. By doing so, you take back control—even in the uncertainty of disaster.
There are many benefits to planning ahead for disasters. The most important benefits are staying safe and helping yourself and your community recover.
People and families that plan for emergencies will:
• Help keep people safe;
• Limit property damage;
• Know what to do during and after a disaster;
• Better manage their savings;
• Support community preparedness; and
• Help their community get back up and running after a disaster.
