In any kind of emergency, time is crucial. The question is: Are you prepared? Take the quiz to find out! http://www.redcross.org/lp/national-preparedness-month-2013-quiz
The month of September is National Preparedness Month. Disaster can strike at any time, so the American Red Cross encourages families to take action and develop a emergency game plan. Start by downloading any or all of the Red Cross Mobile Apps which will help you help make you more aware of hurricanes, tornados, earthquakes, wildfires, local shelters, first-aid advice, volunteer opportunities and more!
Be pro-active and start thinking of different disasters that could take place in your specific location, along with different scenarios; such as being seperated from your family. This will help you create a basic plan that will keep you safe when disaster strikes.
Lastly, compile an easy-to-carry supply kit designed to last at least a three days if evacuation were necessary. Need a checklist? Visit http://www.redcross.org/prepare/location/home-family/get-kit to find out more information on how to be prepared at any place, any time.
