Be Prepared

Make a Plan

Disasters often strike quickly and without warning. A disaster can force you to evacuate your home or office, separate you from your family and affect your access to everyday necessities like food, water, and electricity.

Making a plan for your family and business is essential to answering questions like:

  • Where do I go if I can't find my family members?
  • What do we do if we don't have water or electricity?
  • How quickly can my business re-open?
