From the Introduction: "For Americans, preparedness must now account for man-made disasters as well as natural ones. Knowing what to do during an emergency is an important part of being prepared and may make all the difference when seconds count. Some of the things you can do to prepare for the unexpected, such as making an emergency supply kit and developing an emergency plan, are the same for both a natural or man-made emergency. This preparedness guide explains thunderstorms and related hazards and suggests life-saving actions YOU can take. With this information, YOU can recognize severe weather, develop a plan, and be ready to act when threatening weather approaches. Remember, your safety, and the safety of those in your care, is up to YOU!"
