The individuals and families in the area are somewhat prepared for a potential disaster, but there is room for improvement. Many people have some basic emergency supplies such as non-perishable food, water, flashlights and first aid kits. However, fewer people have taken the time to create an emergency plan that outlines what actions should be taken in case of a disaster. Additionally, fewer still have done research on how to properly use and store these supplies in order to ensure their safety and effectiveness. Furthermore, not all individuals and families understand the importance of creating evacuation routes or keeping important documents such as insurance policies easily accessible in case of emergencies. Overall, while some progress has been made towards preparing for potential disasters most individuals could benefit from gaining additional knowledge about how best to prepare themselves and their families for a potential disaster situation.
