There are many things you can do to lessen the impact that a disaster will have on you and your family. These activities range from assembling 72 hour preparedness kits to taking online classes. Each of these activities are important before, during, and after disasters.
Disasters can be fast and terrifying like an earthquake, or slow and impending like a river breaching its banks. Either way, what you do during the disaster can affect how quickly you and your family will recover afterwards.
