You can prepare for emergencies or disasters before they happen. Using the 72-Hour Kit (PDF) is one tool to make sure you are prepared if an emergency or disaster happens to you or your family. The American Red Cross and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) are just a few of the sites that have a wealth of information on disaster preparedness.
During a disaster, it will be difficult for response agencies to provide immediate help to the public. It is important for individuals to prepare themselves and their families.
