Have you taken steps to prepare for an emergency? According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), three elements of good preparation are:

Being Informed
Learn about the potential emergencies that can happen where you live and know the appropriate ways to respond to them.
Making a Plan
Your family may not be together when disaster strikes, so it is important to plan what you would do in different situations. How would you get to a safe place? How would you contact one another and get back together?
Building a Kit
Find a list of suggested items to include in an emergency supply kit.

Taking these steps could help you and your family in the event of an emergency.
