4 phases of an emergency

Here are four things that you can do in an emergency:

  1. Preparedness – Make a 72-hour emergency kit for your entire household (including pets)
  2. Response – Make a plan to stay with family or friends if necessary
  3. Mitigation – Take steps to reduce the impact, such as having a generator or prescription medicine available
  4. Recovery – Be patient as recovery can be the longest phase
