Are You Prepared for an Emergency?

Preparing for, or talking about, how to handle emergencies is good practice for individuals and communities. Often, individuals avoid this because they do not want to be perceived as negative, a worrier, or always thinking about the worst. Yet, these beliefs get in the way and can leave us surprised or unprepared.

Communities who prepare, care!

The American Red Cross suggests: "Disasters can happen, anytime, anywhere. Learn ways to be prepared."

They also offer many ways to get ready: classes, items to purchase like First Aid kits, and education about what to do in a fire, flood, extreme outdoor temperatures, or snowstorm.
