It's important to be prepared to deal with emergencies and disasters of various types.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security administers the Ready America campaign to educate and empower Americans to prepare for and respond to emergencies, including natural and man-made disasters. The Ready America website provides basic information on emergency readiness, as well as an emergency supply list, information for pet owners, families, seniors and those with disabilities or special needs. You can download various brochures to better prepare, plan and stay informed.
Ready San Diego, an online resource from the County of San Diego, has information on how to get alerts and how to better prepare before an emergency.
