Is your family prepared for a disaster?

Filed under: Health & Safety: Babies

As San Francisco, the city in which I live, marks the 100th anniversary of the Great Earthquake of 1906 today, I've been thinking about how to prepare for a disaster. Luckily I don't have to think too hard because the city of San Francisco Office of Emergency Services has put together an excellent website telling me exactly what I need to do to prepare for an earthquake, flood, fire, power outage, or act of terrorism.

The site outlines exactly what should be in your disaster preparedness kit. Following the links on the site you can plan a kit for each member of your family including your pets. It also tailors kits for children and seniors.  Once the kit is done, the site offers guidlines on how to get involved in preparing your community and also spells out exactly what to do in case of specific disasters.

The site doesn't just benefit San Francisco residents. Check it out and see if you're prepared. We found out we really weren't. At all. Kudos San Francisco for a job well-done!
