"A successful response to disaster begins months, or even years, in advance, when you sit down to develop a plan. This manual is designed to help you construct that plan. In the following pages, you will have the opportunity to answer questions or complete worksheets. Various templates are also included in the appendices to add to your own disaster preparedness binder. […] All the preparation in the world will not matter if you do not also plan out the specific course of action you will take when a disaster strikes. Disasters bring with them chaos, confusion, and fear. The most effective way to combat these destructive elements is to have a clear, comprehensive, well-practiced response plan in place."
