Emergency: ARE YOU READY
FEMA has a website designed to educate and empower Americans to prepare for and respond to emergencies including natural and man-made disasters called Ready.gov.
The site asks individuals to do three key things: (1) build an emergency supply kit, (2) make a family emergency plan and (3) be informed about the different types of emergencies that could occur and their appropriate responses.


Learn how to prepare for emergencies before they strike at Ready.gov or America's Preparathon.
