Have an emergency kit
You should be prepared to take care of yourself and your family for at least three days. Store a kit at home, at work and at each child's school or daycare.
Make a plan with your family
You and your family might not be together during a disaster. Collect contact information of everyone in the family and make sure everyone knows where to go during different disasters.
Get involved in your community
In an emergency, first-responder agencies may be overwhelmed and may need help from trained volunteers. There are many ways you can get involved and support your community.
