Overview

Disasters are a very real occurrence that can happen anywhere in the world at anytime.

Experiencing a disaster is traumatic enough, having the extra disadvantage of being unprepared for such an event will ultimately result in more unnecessary stress in an already stressful situation.

There are many benefits in being prepared for an emergency situation.

Being prepared will aid in reducing the amount of fear, stress and anxiety that generally occurs during a situation.
By being prepared and familiarizing yourself with procedures carried out during these situations you will ensure these feelings are minimized.

Increased amounts of stress and anxiety may result in a person being unable to respond correctly or effectively during a situation. If you cannot think and act appropriately, it is unlikely that your will be able to effectively take care of yourself and your family. By being prepared with the correct equipment, and by familiarizing yourself with characteristics, requirements and procedures during relevant forms of emergency situations, you will increase your chances of being able to react appropriately to such situations.

By being prepared and knowing ahead of time what may occur in certain situations, you may also successfully minimize the impact of a situation.
