EduHound Weekly: September 1, 2005

TOPIC OF THE WEEK: EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS

"Preparedness is everyone's responsibility. All sectors of society - business and industry, civic and volunteer groups, industry associations and neighborhood associations, as well as every individual citizen and every family - should plan ahead for disaster. During the first few hours or days following a disaster, essential services may not be available. People must be ready to act on their own."
- FEMA
