This guide will help you and your family prepare for a disaster. Keep this sheet in a special place so you will always know where to find it. Get the family together now to start following the 4 steps to safety readiness! Disaster can strike quickly and without warning. It can force you to evacuate your neighborhood or confine you to your home. What would you do if basic services--water, gas, electricity or telephones --were cut off? Local officials and relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster, but they cannot reach everyone right away.
Disasters disrupt hundreds of thousands of lives every year. Each disaster has lasting effects—people are seriously injured, some are killed, and property damage runs into the billions of dollars. If a disaster occurs in your community, local government and disaster-relief organizations will be there to help. But you can be ready as well.
