According to Learn To Be Ready,
disaster preparedness takes THREE simple steps:
First – Become Educated and Informed
Second – Develop a Disaster Plan
Third - Take Action & Prepare
1. Become Educated and Informed about the disasters in your area – You won’t know how to prepare if you don’t understand the disasters that pose a threat to you. Through Learn to Be Ready you will find all of the tools necessary to obtain knowledge about the natural disasters in your area. We offer live seminars, webinars you can watch at home or at work, training videos, monthly newsletters, and other written material to provide the full education you need to prepare.
2. Develop a Disaster Plan – For your home & family, your business, and your neighborhood. The plan should establish the steps of action – what to do BEFORE, DURING, AND AFTER each disaster.
3. Take Action & Prepare – A plan with no action is no better than no plan at all. Start now to take action. Make a checklist of things to be done and then work on them a little at a time, at a pace that you can handle. But, do something every day or every week to get something accomplished.
