Start with Just One Thing...

Natural disasters and human-created emergencies happen. We all know it’s wise to plan ahead for them, but many of us struggle with that. For some, it’s because planning makes us think about an event we're afraid of. For others, it can feel like an overwhelming process. This guide will help break emergency preparedness into small, manageable tasks. Start with Just One Thing to prepare for emergencies now. Then make a plan to build on that over the next few weeks and months.

Emergency preparedness is for everyone. Don't wait. Start today.
