This book will serve as a guide to help you decide what to do if an emergency event is forecast to strike or actually strikes when you are at home or work. You will learn simple, achievable and inexpensive ways to better prepare you and your family to respond to a variety of emergency events. While no one can tell us the time and place of each emergency event, everyone can plan their response 'just in case.' Preparation is the key, from the family emergency plan you develop, to the supplies you have stored to shelter-in-place and those supplies packed for evacuating to a safer place. This book provides you with specific steps to help you prepare for and respond to an emergency. The time to prepare is now!
