Dangerously Unexpected Disasters: Chemical Emergencies and Terrorism


Our country faced tragic events on September 11, 2001.

National Preparedness Month reminds us to not only prepare for different kinds of hazardous weather, but also the other dangerously unexpected disasters like chemical emergencies and terrorism.


Take the time to educate yourself and your family about these types of disasters. Work together to build your disaster preparedness kits with consideration to immediate survival needs – water, food, medicine, etc. Plan what to do in the event you are unable to be together, ways you will be able to communicate to each other and how you can reunite. Gather resources that will help you obtain up-to-date information provided by public safety officials to determine what are safe steps to take.
