Preparedness in Your Home

Preparedness in Your Home


Planning and preparing for a pandemic influenza is just as important as preparing for other types of emergencies and disasters. Emergencies and disasters can happen quickly, and without warning at anytime. Some emergencies may force you to evacuate or confine you to your home. Local officials and emergency responders will be on scene in an emergency and may not be immediately available to everyone.

You will not always know where you or your family will be when a disaster strikes. Taking additional steps now to prepare for any potential emergency or disaster will help your family cope during an emergency.
