Natural disasters can occur randomly. Man-made disasters can be just as unpredictable. No matter where you live in Texas, it’s important to learn about the potential hazards near you to get ahead of what’s ahead.
Part of being prepared is being well informed about disasters. Have you considered the types of disasters you may face?
- Do you know what your risk is for hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, winter storms, or wildfires?
- Have you thought about man-made, industrial-type disasters?
What if the worst happens? It’s important to understand how a disaster can affect your physical and emotional health. Planning in advance for things such as prolonged power outages or lack of safe drinking water will make it easier for you and your family to manage the disaster.
