How Prepared is Your Family?

There is no time like the present to take an inventory of your emergency preparedness kit. As summer gives way to fall, it's the perfect time to take an assessment of your survival tools, that is if you have any.

Each car and home should be stocked with basic emergency preparedness supplies.

Depending on where you live and the propensity to natural disasters in your area, stocking up on survival supplies is a must. Whether it's an earthquake, fire, flood, hurricane or terrorist attack, communities, organizations, families, and individuals should have a supply of emergency survival must haves in addition to a well documented and practiced emergency plan.

Emergency preparedness planning minimizes anxiety and reduces unnecessary confusion and chaos that can occur when emergencies and disasters strike. The proper planning can help with evacuations. In addition homes, cars and offices should be stocked with survival kits that cover the entire family for a 72 hour period of time. Having food and water supplies is critical. Basic medical care should be reviewed as well as identifying the location of first aid kits and medical supplies.
