Prepare Your Health

There are literally 100 reasons to prepare for an emergency , such as a natural disaster, a power outage, and pandemic influenza. Most Americans do not have supplies set aside or plans in place to protect their own or their family’s health and safety.

The good news is that it is never too late to prepare for a public health emergency. You can take actions, make healthy choices, and download free resources to help you prepare for, adapt to, and cope with adversity.

Learn how to prepare for, respond to, and recover from emergencies then share what you’ve learned with others to help build more resilient communities.
