How prepared are you and your family for a disaster? The first step is to develop a comprehensive plan detailing how you will respond to various hazards. Download the Disaster Preparations Checklist to see how prepared you are. What about seniors, people with disabilities, or pet owners. Do you have a plan?

Resources to help you with your plan can be found at FEMA's "A Guide to Citizen Preparedness" and the Fire Department's page on what your family needs to be self-sufficient for 72 hours in the event of some man-made or natural disaster.
