Preparing for Emergencies

Are you prepared for an emergency? Get a kit. Make a plan.

Sounds  easy, doesn’t it?  We want it to be easy for you - our goal is to help you plan in advance what you will do in an emergency.  

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security states that "Disaster preparedness is no longer the sole concern of earthquake-prone Californians and those who live in the part of the country known as 'Tornado Alley.'  For Americans, preparedness must now account for man-made disasters as well as natural ones. Knowing what to do during an emergency is an important part of being prepared and may make all the difference when seconds count.”

Planning is easy. Take time to examine the resources that were compiled to assist you in creating your personal and business emergency plans at www.ready.gov.
