What would you do if an emergency happened here?
We may not have any advance warning when an emergency, such as a natural disaster, strikes. But through education, training, and having an emergency kit on hand, you can ensure that you've taken the necessary steps to protect yourself and your family. Experts say we should be ready to be self-sufficient for at least 72 hours in the event of an emergency.
