Be Ready

Why Prepare?

Three good reasons:

  • You can reduce fear, anxiety, and losses that accompany disasters.
  • You can reduce the impact of disasters and sometimes avoid the danger completely.
  • You should know how to respond to severe weather or any disaster that could occur in your area – hurricanes, earthquakes, extreme cold, flooding, or terrorism.
