Devastating acts, such as 911 and the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, have left many concerned about the possibility of future events and their potential impact. They have raised uncertainty and heightened our awareness of the importance of emergency preparedness. There are specific steps you can take to prepare for the unexpected and reduce the stress that you may feel now and later should another emergency arise. Taking preparatory action can reassure you, your family and co-workers n that you can exert a measure of control even in the face of such events. According to the American Red Cross, approximately 60% of Americans are not prepared for an emergency. There's a lot to think about when it comes to emergency preparedness. Potential fires, weather emergencies; power outages to gas or water leaks, intruders or active shooters are all things that can happen in our communities.
