Posting an Emergency Preparedness Checklist

Make sure to post checklist where everyone in your family can see it; on the refrigerator or on the bulletin board.

For additional information about how to prepare for hazards in your community, contact your local emergency management or civil defense office and American Red Cross chapter.

* If a disaster occurs in our community, local government and disaster-relief organizations will try to help you, but you need to be ready as well. A Local responder may not be able to reach you immediately, or they may need to focus their efforts elsewhere.
