FEMA helps prepare your family for a disaster with a new online kit
Sep 09, 2013




FEMA
September is National Preparedness Month, and ABC2 is working for you, helping you organize your family with the government's new Interactive Emergency Kit.
It's a social media campaign from FEMA designed help you plan for a worst case scenario.
The kit includes apps you can download and learn to use now, since cell phone signals are usually unreliable in emergency situations.
There are also online, step-by-step guidelines for how to prepare your family, including drills and emergency routes.
FEMA also has a new project that lets you alert other people to problems by uploading pictures to a public map.
FEMA recommends doing dry runs with your family and acting out what to do during a real emergency.
They say people who train for disasters are 86% more likely to follow the right steps in real-life situations.
