Some disasters strike without any warning and others happen with a few days advance notice.
It will bring a sense of relief if you plan ahead and have an emergency preparedness checklist ready to go.
Here are some key points:
- Make sure you have enough supplies to last for at least three days.
- Keep a large emergency supply kit at home and a smaller one at your workplace.
- Include everything you will need to stay where you are and make it on your own for at least the first 72 hours after a disaster.
