PREP provides practical information on getting ready for any potential emergency, from storms and power outages to floods and earthquakes. This information will help you and your neighbors to make it through on your own, since authorities may be overwhelmed and unable to respond promptly after a major disaster.
PREP offers step-by-step tips, with printable checklists and links to more information. PREP has four steps to readiness:
Get Prepared: What to know, what to have on hand, what to do ahead of time
Get Prepared with Your Neighbors: How to help your neighbors get ready
Get Organized: Make a plan with your neighbors for helping each other after the disaster
Get Confident: Keep current and learn new skills by practicing together
