Resolve to Be Ready in 2010


For many, the New Year is a time to make resolutions and goals for the year. The Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) Ready Campaign is asking Americans to Resolve to be Ready in 2010 by putting emergency preparedness at the top of their list of resolutions.

Preparing ahead of time can mitigate Mother Nature's nastier surprises, speed recovery, and reduce losses whether they are floods, winter storms, wildfires, and earthquakes. By following the Ready Campaign's three steps, preparing for an emergency can be a simple and realistic resolution you can keep all year long:

1) Get an emergency supply kit;

2) Make a family emergency plan; and

3) Be informed about the types of emergencies that can happen in your area and their appropriate responses.

Emergencies will happen, but taking action now can help minimize the impact they will have on our lives. Preparedness is contagious, what starts with one family

The web site includes free information, checklists and guidelines about the two other key components of preparedness – developing a family emergency plan and being informed.
