Disaster Preparedness - presented by a member of the California National Guard. He shared several useful tips, including:

  • Have a minimum of 3 days food and water, 1 gallon per day per person. Better would be to have 9 days. During a big disaster, it may take 3 days for help to arrive, more days to get to you.
  • Develop an out of state contact list, a family plan that might include a place to try to meet. It is often easier to call out of state than locally.
  • Keep copies of important documents in your car – insurance information, credit card information, perhaps a spare ATM card.
  • Keep copies of important documents in a waterproof bag in your freezer. During a fire, the freezer will be the last to go. How will you get a new driver’s license?
  • Have an emergency kit in your car. Aside from the usual items – flashlight, food, blanket, etc. – consider having a pair of shoes – how far will you walk in high heels? A pair of pants for if you are wearing a skirt.
