Prepare you and your family for any emergency.

Being prepared for an emergency consists of simple actions such as keeping a 72-hour kit ready to go and having emergency contact information, including out-of-state family members, printed and distributed to your family. It also includes being aware of the types of emergencies you may experience in your area and what to do for each one.

If your family is prepared for an emergency, you will be much more likely to survive the disaster and recover from it faster. When planning for emergencies, don’t forget about your pets!
