As catastrophic weather events, terrorism, international tensions, and other disasters such as earthquakes and wildfires continue to threaten our way of life, it is vital that all American families, places of business and other organizations not only possess the supplies necessary to sustain them through periods of emergency, but the training and planning required to survive.
This guide has been designed to help the citizens of this nation learn how to protect themselves and their families against all types of hazards. It can be used as a reference source or as a step-by-step manual. The focus of the content is on how to develop, practice, and maintain emergency plans that reflect what must be done before, during, and after a disaster to protect people and their property.
Also included is information on how to assemble a disaster supplies kit that contains the food, water, and other supplies in sufficient quantity for individuals and their families to survive following a disaster in the event they must rely on their own resources.

There are real benefits to being prepared.
- Being prepared can reduce fear, anxiety, and losses that accompany disasters. Communities, families, and individuals should know what to do in the event of fires or tornados. They should be ready to evacuate their homes and know how to care for their basic medical needs.
- People also can reduce the impact of disasters and sometimes avoid the danger completely.
The need to prepare is real.
- Disasters disrupt hundreds of thousands of lives every year. Each disaster has lasting effects, both to people and property.
- If a disaster occurs in your community, local government and disaster-relief organizations will try to help you, but you need to be ready as well.
- You should know how to respond to severe weather or any disaster that could occur in your area — hurricanes, earthquakes, extreme cold, flooding, or terrorism.
- You should also be ready to be self-sufficient for at least three days. This may mean providing for your own shelter, first aid, food, water, and sanitation.
Using this book makes preparation practical.
- This book was developed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), which is the agency responsible for responding to national disasters and for helping state and local governments and individuals prepare for emergencies. It contains step-by-step advice on how to prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters.
- Used in conjunction with information and instructions from local emergency management offices and the American Red Cross, this book will give you what you need to be prepared.
