FEMA Advice for Disasters: What You Need to Know

By    |   Friday, 24 Jun 2016 05:51 PM

The Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA, helps individuals and groups prepare for and cope with disasters by giving advice and information. It's part of the Department of Homeland Security.

Preparedness can make things easier to manage when disaster does strike, and can even save your life or the life of a family member.

Before a disaster strikes, FEMA advises taking these steps to be prepared:

1. Build a disaster kit.
Some items to include in a basic disaster supplies kit are one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days, a three-day supply of nonperishable food for the household, and a battery-powered or hand crank radio. A flashlight, first aid kit, manual can opener, local paper maps, and a cell phone solar or car charger are other items you may want to include.

2. Make an emergency plan.
It’s a good idea to make an emergency plan with your family so you have a meeting place and everyone knows what to do. Having cash at your house or with you can also keep your family going in the event of banks shutting down temporarily. Reference books for first aid and other necessary information can be useful if internet resources become unavailable.

3. Secure insurance.
Having the proper insurance is another way to prepare for a disaster. You may not be able to prevent all damage to your home and property, but insurance will cover the costs of repairing and rebuilding after the disaster passes, says FEMA.

After a disaster takes place, FEMA can help you get access to resources like federal emergency funding and assistance from the Red Cross to help you get back on your feet. DisasterAssistance.gov advises those who need help to contact their state’s emergency management agency to find out what resources might be available to them.
