ABSTRACT

Are You Ready? An In-Depth Guide to Citizen Preparedness (September 2020)   [open pdf - 4MB]

From the Document: "Disasters disrupt thousands of lives every year, leaving behind lasting effects on people and property. After a disaster, many others in your community need help as well. For this reason, local first responders and other assistance may not be able to reach you right away. You and your family can take simple steps now to prepare for emergencies. By doing so, you 'take back control'--even in the uncertainty of disaster. This 'comprehensive guide' will provide you with detailed information on how best to prepare for disasters within your family and in your community. In this document you will learn general disaster preparedness tips for before, during, and after disasters, as well as best practices to inform your preparedness decisions about 'specific disasters,' such as hurricanes, earthquakes, and active shooters."
