Get an Emergency Kit
If disaster strikes your community, you might not have access to food, water, or electricity for some time. By taking time now to prepare emergency water supplies, food supplies and a disaster supplies kit, you can provide for your entire family. Review the items recommended for a disaster supplies kit or print the Homeland Security Emergency Supply checklist.
Make an Emergency Plan
Make plans with your family and friends in case you're not together during an emergency. Discuss how you'll contact each other, where you'll meet, and what you'll do in different situations. Read how to develop a family disaster plan or fill out the Homeland Security Family Emergency. Ask about planning at your workplace and your child's school or daycare center. The American Red Cross gives guidelines for school preparedness. Workers at small, medium, and large businesses should practice for emergencies of all kinds.
Being prepared – means staying informed. Check all types of media – Web sites, newspapers, radio, TV, mobile and land phones – for global, national and local information. During an emergency, your local Emergency Management or National Emergency Services office will give you information on such things as open shelters and evacuation orders.
Look into taking first aid and emergency response training, participating in community exercises, and volunteering to support local first responders. Contact Citizens Corps, which coordinates activities to make communities safer, stronger, and better prepared to respond to an emergency situation. Contact the Medical Reserve Corps, (MRC). MRC are community-based units and function as a way to locally organize and utilize volunteers who want to donate their time and expertise to prepare for and respond to emergencies and promote healthy living throughout the year.
