Prepare Now for a Disaster!
Are you prepared?
Disasters can strike quickly and with little or no warning.  You and your family could be anywhere -- together, apart, at work, at school, on vacation, at home.  Cope with disasters by preparing in advance and working together as a team.  This will help reduce fear, anxiety, and losses that always accompany a disaster or emergency.
