Are you and your family prepared for an emergency such as a power outage, winter storm, earthquake, or tsunami?
Make emergency preparedness your family's New Year's Resolution. Your family needs to have enough food, water, and supplies to cope for at least seven days without outside assistance, depending on the emergency.
