Preparedness consists of a wide range of activities that ensure that individuals, families, organizations, and governmental agencies are capable of withstanding the impact of disaster and effectively recovering from those impacts; however, preparedness must begin at home!  Being prepared at home involves learning about the hazards you face and what you should do when those hazards become a reality.  Each individual’s needs within the home must be addressed in order to be truly prepared for disaster.
