Emergency events can occur quickly and without warning. Planning for an emergency requires considering all likely scenarios.
During an emergency electricity, water, heat, air conditioning, telephone service, and transportation could be disrupted or lost for a considerable amount of time.
Most emergency planners suggest having enough food, water, medications, and other essentials on hand to last your family for three to five days for emergency events.
For some emergencies, you may have to evacuate your home or community.
