Hazards and Disasters


How should we prepare for disaster

Disasters can and do happen everywhere. You should prepare for disaster by having a disaster supply kit with supplies for you and everyone in your family available at home and work, as well as a mini kit in your automobile. It should include food, water, first aid equipment, sturdy shoes, an AM/FM radio (with batteries kept outside of the radio), a flashlight (with batteries kept outside of the flashlight), vital medication (especially prescription medication), blankets, cash (if the power and computers are down, credit and ATM cards won’t work), games and toys for children, and any other essentials. Contact your local chapter of the Red Cross for more information about disaster preparedness.
