The Emergency Preparedness and Response Web site offers additional information and resources under topics such as hurricane preparedness, extreme heat, and bioterrorism. Review the items recommended for a disaster supplies kit or print the Homeland Security Emergency Supply checklist.
Read how to develop a family disaster plan or fill out the Homeland Security Family Emergency Plan.
During an emergency, your local Emergency Management or Emergency Services office will give you information on such things as open shelters and evacuation orders. Look into taking first aid and emergency response training, participating in community exercises, and volunteering to support local first responders.

Workers at small, medium, and large businesses should practice for emergencies of all kinds. MRC are community-based units and function as a way to locally organize and utilize volunteers who want to donate their time and expertise to prepare for and respond to emergencies and promote healthy living throughout the year.
Homeland Security promotes emergency preparedness all year round via the Ready America campaign. CDC continually updates information on recent outbreaks and incidents, and lists emergency resources for the general public as well as for clinicians and public health professionals. As I rarely use animation, and stick with large images, sometimes I also save my PPT as JPG and in case they have older version of MS Powerpoint or having Mac instead of Win PC, I just run my presentations as a slideshow.

By taking time now to prepare emergency water supplies, food supplies and a disaster supplies kit, you can provide for your entire family.
Contact Citizens Corps, which coordinates activities to make communities safer, stronger and better prepared to respond to an emergency situation.
