The National Safety Council wants you to be ready when a hurricane, flood, earthquake or other emergency strikes. To stay safe, create emergency kits for your home and your car that include: communication devices such as radios and walkie-talkies with spare batteries, at least three days worth of non-perishable food, a first aid kit and other essentials. Emergency skills like knowing First Aid and CPR are always useful. Don't forget to practice taking shelter with your family regularly so you'll be confident if disaster strikes.
