Disasters don’t plan, but you can!
It’s imperative to develop an individual or family emergency plan. In fact, the success of a resilient community is, in large part, dependent on how well residents develop their individual and family plans.
How might a disaster affect you? Could you make it on your own for at least three days? After a disaster, you may not have access to a medical facility or even a drugstore, so it’s crucial to plan for the resources you use regularly, and what you would do if those resources are limited or not available.
