Disasters can strike
quickly and without warning. It can force you to evacuate your neighborhood or
confine you to your home. What would you do if basic services (water, gas,
electricity, sewer or telephones) were cut off? Ask yourself how will you find
your family members if you were separated after an earthquake? How will you know
if your children or parents are safe? Families can help reduce the physical
challenges as well as the stress of a disaster by preparing in advance.
