WCPH encourages everyone to begin or continue a process of learning about potential threats so we are better prepared to react during an attack, natural disaster, or other emergencies. While there is no way to predict what will happen, or what your personal circumstances will be, there are simple things you can do now to prepare yourself and your loved ones. Some of the things you can do to prepare for an emergency are based on three basic activities:
- Be Informed
- Make a Plan
- Have a Kit
With a little planning, we all can be better prepared for the unexpected. Know where your family will meet if you have to evacuate your home. Have a communication plan in case cell towers are down. Have supplies ready by filling a bag with water bottles, non-perishable food items, flashlights, batteries, important documents, cash, medicines, and other items you may need to survive on your own. We recommend being prepared with these items to have enough for three days. Get ready now!
