Be Informed, Prepared & Involved - Be Ready
Disaster can strike quickly and without warning. It can force you to evacuate your neighborhood or confine you to your home. What would you do if basic services such as water, gas, electricity, or telephones were cut off? Local officials and relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster, but they cannot reach everyone right away.
Families cope with disaster by preparing in advance and working together as a team. Follow the steps listed on the Ready Region website to create your family’s disaster plan. Knowing what to do is your best protection and your responsibility. Be informed, prepared, and involved. Are you ready?
