California! When disaster strikes, will your family be ready?
To make sure your answer is Yes, CaliforniaVolunteers has launched a WE Prepare disaster preparedness campaign to motivate families to take action and get prepared for both natural and man-made disasters.
In California, WE Prepare by getting ready and bearing responsibility for our own safety and the safety of others. I urge you to take a few minutes right now to use this Web site to create your family’s disaster plan. By doing so, you can help lessen the impact disasters have on our families, our communities and our state.
Be sure to click on:
Determine Your Family’s Risk to take a short quiz that will help you determine your family’s current level of preparedness.
Customize Your Family Plan & Children’s Book to create a disaster plan for your family and a personalized children’s story that will help you teach your children how to be disaster prepared.
As you explore this site, keep in mind that one of the ways WE Prepare is by helping others. Forward this valuable information to a friend or loved one and talk to them about the importance of being disaster prepared.
By using the tools on this site and encouraging others to do the same, we are bringing our families and communities one step closer to being safer, stronger and better prepared to respond to disaster. Together we can help California Get Ready!
