Be prepared! Stuff happens.

IF you are at home when a disaster occurs, are you prepared?
If not, shame on you.

We see these sad events happen and think they won't happen to us!?
What's the risk in your area?
Tsunami?
Hurricane?
Earthquake?
Fire?
Flood?
Volcanic eruption?
Tornado?
Blizzard?
Something else....?

Get a battery powered radio & flashlight/torch, water in jugs, easy food, a first aid kit, warm clothes and misc other helpful items and store them in a handy place.

Have a Plan B, and maybe C.

Can you survive three days without outside assistance?
In case of the Christchurch earthquake, people had to cope much longer than three days! Knowing their neighbours helped a lot.

Discuss a meeting place if you get separated.

Get smart. Be ready. Get thru.

Check your local civil defense websites for suggestions.
