How to react in case of disaster:
Disasters can occur anytime and anywhere. And when disaster strikes, you may not have enough time to respond.
A winter storm could confine your family at home. An earthquake, flood or any other disaster could cut off basic utilities - gas, water, electricity and telephones - for days.
After a disaster, local officials and relief workers will be on the scene, but they cannot reach everyone immediately. You could get help in hours, or it may take days. Would your family be prepared to cope with the emergency until help arrives?
