National Preparedness Month | Week 3
Low-Cost, No-Cost Preparedness
Disasters impact you and your family. The trouble is that we don't always know when a disaster will strike. The family may not always be together, and communication may not be possible. PLAN AHEAD!
Here are 3 Areas to Consider when Preparing for a Disaster:
- Know the risk of disasters and hazards that could affect your area, how to get emergency alerts, and where you would go if you and your family need to evacuate. Visit: www.ready.gov/be-informed. in your area.Is your area prone to earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, or wildfires? Chances are your area may be prone to just a couple. Know what your risks are, and prepare for those.
- Check your insurance coverage. Know what your plan covers. Some may only cover minimal damage, or damage excluding certain areas. Know what you're liable for.
- Learn how to make your home stronger. In the face of storms and other common hazards, act fast if you receive a local warning or alert. Prepare your home to withstand the coming disaster.
Planning ahead could prevent further damage from disaster. Prepare Now!
