Being prepared is your individual responsibility.
Families and neighbors will recover faster from the trauma of a disaster if they are prepared and can reach out to help others.
In a disaster the first people to assist in an emergency are often your neighbors, friends and co-workers. Neighbors, not professional first responders, typically perform 70% of all rescues in major disasters.
Since you do not know where you will be when an emergency occurs, prepare supplies for your home, work and car.
