Click on the buttons to the left to find out how you can prepare yourself and your family for an emergency. What has to happen to get your attention?
Those who have practiced disaster planning are far more likely to be prepared for an emergency event than those who have not. You can also learn what to do in response to a specific disaster, like a tsunami, just in case. World-wide security, growing financial crisis, natural disasters, all these are increasing to a level that we have never seen before. It has never been more important for you to take action and commit to making important decisions. Prepare NOW to ensure you and your family's safety and security. 2010 was one of the deadliest years in generations when it came to natural disasters. The earth was hit with a record number of disasters that killed a quarter million people. Experts say most people aren't prepared for a disaster. Are you? “Yes, It CAN Happen To You”
There were 950 natural disasters recorded last year, making 2010 the second worst year since 1980. The average number of events over the past 10 years was 785. A Disaster can strike quickly and without warning. It can force you to evacuate your neighborhood or confine you to your home. What would you do if your basic services: water, gas, electricity or telephones were cut off? After a disaster it is NOT always possible for officials and relief workers to reach everyone right away. Planning is the key to setting up structure, so that people will do something sensible when things go wrong. People can–and-do–cope with disaster by preparing in advance, and by working together as a team.
