Why Prepare?

You are less likely to have problems in either large or small emergencies if you are prepared.

Small Emergencies

A power failure or your pharmacist running out of your medications, are examples of small emergencies.

Large Emergencies

Large emergencies affect a wide area, overload emergency services, and may mean that you have to be self-sufficient for a week or more.

Systems that people rely on may not work in a major disaster. Things can be even harder for people with disabilities and activity limitations.


Preparing takes time and effort. You might want to do a little at a time. The important thing is to start. The more you do, the better you can protect yourself.
