Disasters can occur at any time and in many different forms. Having a disaster plan and an emergency kit can go a long ways in helping you handle the emergency and help insure your family is safe.
You can go to the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Ready.gov website to create an emergency plan and obtain a list of suggested items for your emergency kit. You can also visit the Ready Illinois website for more information on disaster preparedness from the Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA). If you are looking for even more local information, you can check out the Alert Lake County website.
