What does it mean to be prepared?
For FAMILIES, it means households have an emergency supply kit so they can be self-reliant for at least three days in case of emergency, and they have a plan for how they will respond and reconnect after an emergency.
For BUSINESSES, it means employers have planned for how they will survive a disaster; they've backed up critical information, developed a plan for assisting employees on site, established a call tree to account for employees, and identified back-up sources of power and supplies.
For SCHOOLS, it means schools and districts have developed, implemented, and communicated crisis plans.
Being prepared means staying informed, knowing how to get information and alerts from local emergency management agencies, and understanding the specific risks in your community and preparing against them.
