Disaster Preparedness Information

Do you and your family have a plan for when a disaster strikes?  Do you have a 72 hour kit that contains all the items you would need to survive?  Items like food, water, and medicine.  If you’re in a Tsunami inundation zone do you know where to go to be safe?  What if you’re at work, the grocery store or other areas you frequent on a regular basis?  How will you and your family survive?   Get educated, get prepared and have a plan.
