Being prepared can make all the difference in a time when suddenly every second counts. Good & Ready is an initiative that encourages families to take a few simple steps in order to be prepared for emergencies such as natural disasters, weather emergencies or unexpected events. Regardless of where you live, knowing what to do before, during and after an emergency or disaster is a vitally important.
Presently just one in ten Americans is prepared to protect themselves, their families or homes in a natural disaster. For information on how to prepare your home and family for an emergency, go to: http://goodnready.pointsoflight.org/.
You can also download a checklist of what to pack in an emergency at: http://www.ready.gov/sites/default/files/documents/files/checklist_1.pdf.
By the way, if you take the Good & Ready quiz online before the end of this month and pledge to take a few simple steps toward emergency preparedness, you will also be entered to win some neat prizes.
