In order to prepare for natural disasters, it is important to have a plan in place. Develop an emergency plan that includes what to do in the event of a natural disaster such as a hurricane, tornado, earthquake, or flood. Make sure to include emergency contact information and designated safe locations. Build an emergency kit with items such as food, water, flashlights, batteries, and a first aid kit. Research evacuation routes and practice them with your family. Be sure to stay informed with updates from your local news and emergency services.
