Ready for Hurricane Gustav?

As the season’s first major hurricane, Gustav, bears down on the Gulf coast, I thought it might be appropriate to review the Federal government’s information on preparedness. Those living in coastal communities should plan what they will do if they are told to evacuate.
This information comes directly from the government website at Ready.gov  .
Prepare your family
Some of the things you can do to prepare for the unexpected, such as making an emergency supply kit and developing a family communications plan, are the same for both a natural or man-made emergency.
However, there are important differences among potential emergencies that will impact the decisions you make and the actions you take. Learn more about the potential emergencies that could happen where you live and the appropriate way to respond to them.
In addition, learn about the emergency plans that have been established in your area by your state and local government.
Emergency preparedness is no longer the sole concern of earthquake prone Californians and those who live in the part of the country known as “Tornado Alley.” For all people everywhere, preparedness must now account for man-made disasters as well as natural ones. Knowing what to do during an emergency is an important part of being prepared and may make all the difference when seconds count.
Are you prepared? Take this quiz to determine your Readiness Quotient.
