Public Health Threats
Are You Prepared?
Disaster can strike quickly
and without warning. It can force you to evacuate your neighborhood, workplace
or school or can confine you to your home. What would you do if basic services
-- water, gas, electricity or telephones--were cut off? Local officials and
relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster, but they cannot reach
everyone right away. Therefore, the best way to make you and your family safer
is to be prepared before disaster strikes.
Some of the things you can do to prepare for the unexpected, such as assembling
a supply kit and developing a family communications plan, are the same for both
a natural or man-made emergency. Go to the following website for important information.
