Do you know how to protect your family in the event of a major disaster, such as an earthquake, fire, or flood? By being prepared before a disaster occurs, you can alleviate fear and panic, decrease the amount of damage to your property, and increase your chances for survival. You can take action as an individual, as a family and as a community. If a catastrophic disaster occurs, you must be prepared to survive without local government intervention for a minimum of 72 hours. If transportation, power, water, telephone and other essential services are disrupted, you need to be prepared in your home, at work and in your automobile.
