emergency preparedness and homeland security

emergency's happen every day...and there's a great place that is available for you to go for one stop information.

ready america is a campaign by homeland security that has a site with a number of very useful things.
there is a listing of community and state contacts and information {listed by state} that will allow you a one stop place to find out who to contact and how to contact them. good info, especially when faced with something unforeseen. i love that is one place to get the information.

telephone communication during an emergency...
It may be easier to make a long-distance phone call than to call across town, so an out-of-town contact may be in a better position to communicate among separated family members.

Be sure every member of your family knows the phone number and has coins or a prepaid phone card to call the emergency contact

You may have trouble getting through, or the telephone system may be down altogether,but be patient.

more information is available at the homeland security website...HERE.
