Alternate Title: Alabama Family Readiness Guide

"Many types of disasters can create public health problems--weather, chemical, radiological and biological. Injury or illness can occur as a direct result of the event, or as a result of people trying to cope with the event. The most important fact to remember about any disaster is this: by being prepared, you can help prevent or reduce harm to your family, yourself and others. This booklet was written to give you basic disaster preparedness education. I urge you to take the time to read the information and make your own emergency plans with family, friends, caregivers and co-workers. You should update these plans at least once a year, or when there is an important change in contacts or other information."
