Personal Preparedness

Everyone should have a personal and family disaster plan. Such plans should include specific items that you should set aside for use only in an emergency such as water, non-perishable food items, flashlights and batteries, and blankets. Also, plans should include information for family members detailing how to contact one another in an emergency.
