There are hazards in anything one does but there are greater hazards in doing nothing. - Shirley Williams

Emergency events are often chaotic. People react to disaster situations in different ways. It's common for individuals to lose their composure during a crisis and forget the appropriate responses to take. All emergency/disaster preparations and responses share some basic concepts that should be applied. Having a basic emergency plan can help you through any situations that occur, regardless of your location.

However each emergency is unique and knowing the actions to take for each threat will impact the specific decisions and preparations you make. By learning about these specific threats, you are preparing yourself to react in an emergency. You should have a detailed emergency action plan for all potential disasters you may experience.
