If you heard a bad storm was headed your way, would you know what to do? If your power went out for several days, or you had to care for a sick loved one, would you have everything you need? If you had to evacuate and leave your home, would you be ready?Most Americans would have to answer “No.” The American Red Cross has done some research which shows that only about 12 percent of Americans are reasonably ready for a disaster. That means that the majority of us have to do more to get prepared.
