After a disaster, local officials and relief workers will be on the scene, but they cannot reach everyone immediately. In the event it would take hours, or days would your family be prepared to cope with the emergency until help arrives?
Your family will cope best by preparing for disasters before they happen. One way is by assembling a Disaster Supplies Kit. Once disaster hits, you won’t have much time to prepare or search for supplies. If you have gathered supplies in advance, your family can endure an evacuation or home confinement.
