Natural disasters impact hundreds of thousands of people every year. Every disaster has lasting effects, both to people and property. When a disaster occurs local government and disaster-relief organizations will do their best to help, but they can only do so much. The 2017 wildfires taught us that disaster preparedness is a shared responsibility. Being prepared can reduce fear, anxiety, and losses that accompany disasters. As a community each member must do their part, by being prepared. Knowing what to do and having supplies and equipment to do it with, increases your chance of survival and limits damage. When disaster strikes, you may have to survive on your own for 72 hours or more without access to power, water, food, shelter or transportation.
