Be InformedBeing informed about the different types of emergencies that could happen where you live and the appropriate ways to respond to them will impact the decisions you make and the actions you take.
In addition, learn about the emergency plans that have been established in your area by your state and local government.
9/3 Tip Of The Day - Make a connectionChoose an emergency contact who lives outside your area since it may be easier to call long distance after a disaster. Share this number with your family.
Also, be sure to have a landline in your home and a phone that works without electricity since cellular phones may not be in service during a disaster.
