There are benefits to being prepared.

Being prepared can reduce fear, anxiety, and losses that accompany disasters. Communities, families, and individuals should know what to do in the event of a fire and where to seek shelter during a tornado or hurricane. They should be ready to evacuate their homes and take refuge in public shelters and know how to care for their basic needs.

People also can reduce the impact of disasters (flood proofing, elevating a home or moving a home out of harm's way, and securing items that could shake loose in an earthquake) and sometimes avoid the danger completely.

This checklist provides essential information to help you and your family prepare yourselves for an emergency. The fillable pdf form allows you to record your personal information, taking into account your specific needs. Once you fill out the form and print it, it can be saved to your computer and then modified for future use in the event that any information and details change.
