Disasters often occur with little to no warning, Dave.

Fires and tornadoes can destroy a home in minutes, and hurricanes and other extreme weather events can leave families without power for days.

The American Red Cross is committed to helping communities prepare for emergencies both big and small, and as disaster season approaches, we hope you’ll take a look at some of the resources we’ve put together to help you be ready for what may come. Whether you’ll need to evacuate your home or shelter in place, preparing now can make a huge difference when the unexpected occurs.

First and foremost, assess whether your emergency preparedness kit is ready. Every family should have an emergency preparedness kit to ensure they can meet their daily needs. This checklist will help you put together an emergency preparedness kit.
