Increase Your Family’s Protection
Based on the 2012 Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) National Survey,
- 54% of the U.S. population does not believe their community will experience a natural disaster.
- Only 39% have a plan they have discussed with family members
- Almost 50% do not have supplies set aside in their home for use in a disaster
Unfortunately, a disaster will likely impact you at some point in your life and when it does, you may only have seconds to respond. Your family, friends and community are depending on you if a disaster happens. Are you ready to act?
You can be! As with any skill, practice makes perfect. Practicing preparedness actions is no exception. By learning the right actions and taking time to practice them, you, your family and your community can be ready to respond.
Know the hazards that can affect your community and prepare for them in advance.
Be Informed. Make a Plan. Have a Kit. Get Involved.
