Emergency Response

Emergency Response is a term for a series of appropriate actions and precautions in the event of a disaster. No matter the type of catastrophe, proper emergency response can protect family members and even save lives.
By having a full knowledge of the surroundings, keeping a supply of rescue goods, and having a detailed plan with household members, emergency response can allow peace of mind and better chance of safety in any situation.
One primary key to proper emergency response is being acquainted with the potential for natural and man-made disasters in the surrounding area. Check weather patterns and history to determine if the area is subject to wildfires, floods, mudslides, tidal waves or severe storms.
Also be aware of any potential sources of man-made disasters in the local area. Chemical or nuclear plants can both cause problems in the event of leaks or spills.
