Hazards and Disasters

Introduction

How can I learn more about disasters in my town

Each community should have its own disaster plan that includes a history of past disasters (those that have happened in the past are likely to occur in the future) along with plans for dealing with future disasters. You should be able to consult this plan to learn how your community would cope with disaster and to find out the locations of evacuation routes and shelters. Many communities place important disaster planning information in the telephone book for easy reference.
