Emergency Preparedness

What is Emergency Preparedness?

Emergency preparedness is a way to safeguard your family in case of an unexpected public emergency such as a natural disaster, terrorist action or disease outbreak. A well-developed emergency preparedness plan reduces your vulnerability and provides an important mechanism to cope in the event of a disaster.

Who is at Risk?

Everyone is at risk of natural disasters, acts of terrorism or other man-made disasters. Natural disasters include earthquakes, hurricanes, tornados, landslides, flash floods, tsunami and wild fire. Man-made disasters include the release of hazardous materials, radiological emergencies and blackouts.
