Disaster Preparedness AFTER HOURS Series
Preparedness is the shared responsibility of everyone in the community. A community's ability to respond to or recover from a disaster depends entirely on the level of preparedness of every citizen.
Statistics indicate that 29% of all Americans have done zero preparation while another 60% expect to rely on emergency responders, but remember, THE FIRST 72 ARE ON YOU!
