“Emergencies can strike at anytime, anywhere and without warning.

“We know that the better prepared you are, the better your capacity to respond and recover from any emergency.

“You can protect yourself, the people you love and the things you value most by taking action to be prepared.  Easy to use resources are available at Just thinking about it is not enough.
