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 can be difficult to prepare for every possible scenario, but the better your preparation, the safer you and your family will be should disaster strike.
