How can I prepare?
If a disaster occurs in your community, local government and disaster-relief organizations will assist in every way possible, but you need to be ready as well, as local responders may not be able to reach you immediately, or they may need to focus their efforts elsewhere.
You need a plan for you and your family that includes communication. You need to have supplies in place to be self-sufficient for at least three days. This may mean providing for your own shelter, first aid, food, water, and sanitation.
