EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS Matt Salmassian

Not being prepared can make you lose even the most important things, life itself.

Having a kit one of the most important things you can do to keep your family safe. A kit includes non-perishable foods, a fire starter, a first-aid kit, water, a form of shelter, and a radio, .

500 people die yearly for not being prepared by weather in the US. And over the last 20 years, 1.35 million people have been killed by natural disasters, that's around 67,500 yearly in the world.

A safety plan is a plan you and your family would have to evacuate your home. An evacuation plan should have everyone take part. For example, grabbing your emergency kit, making sure everyone is okay, and then meeting at a safe point for different scenarios.
