Prepare to Survive and Thrive in an Emergency

September 9, 2014

September is National Disaster Preparedness Month, and Huntington Memorial Hospital is encouraging our community to take action now so you can “survive and thrive” in a real emergency.

According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), disaster readiness can be made manageable by taking it one step at a time: Start by learning your specific risk, then gather supplies for an emergency kit, and then develop a family communications plan.

Because most disasters occur without any warning, developing a comprehensive plan in the case of an emergency is essential.

We know that it might be difficult to prepare for every possible scenario, but the better your preparation, the safer you and your family will be should disaster strike.
