Who is responsible for your survival during a disaster?
You are, each of us is responsible for our own survival before, during, and after a disaster.
If help is needed, your neighbors would most likely be the first on-scene to assist.
Next in would be your local emergency workers, so it is essential to make sure your town has a robust emergency preparedness plan.
Relief agencies would also begin to help out at this time.
During a major disaster, your county would be called in to help as well.
State emergency management resources would step up if the county was unable to stabilize the incident.
And finally, your state’s governor would make a request for help from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) if they became overwhelmed.
As you can see, there is a lot of help out there for you, but you don’t want to be that person whose only preparedness plan is to wait for help. GET PREPARED TODAY!
