What can I do now to be better prepared?
Every citizen should be prepared to be on their own for a minimum of 72 hours. The best way to accomplish this is to develop a disaster plan and supplies kit for your family. A good plan will include special considerations for children, pets, or others with special needs, as well as establishing an out-of-area contact. See our Preparedness page for more information.
