Preparedness is how we change behavior to “get ready” for the impact of emergency or disaster events for ourselves, our family, and our community.
Preparedness is part of a continuous cycle of planning, training, equipping, exercising and taking corrective action. The end result is hopefully an increase in safety and improved coordination among response agencies during an incident. Human beings go through life thinking they are not at risk; people think “Even though bad things happen they are not going to happen to me.”
