Stay Informed

Some of the things you can do to prepare for the unexpected, such as making an emergency supply kit and developing a family communications plan, are the same for both a natural or man-made emergency. However, there are important differences among potential emergencies that will impact the decisions you make and the actions you take. Learn more about the potential hazards where you live and the appropriate way to respond to them.

Knowing what to do during an emergency is an important part of being prepared and may make all the difference when seconds count.
