Preparation = Peace of mind
Preparing for an emergency will bring you peace of mind. Our mountain community has seen the devastation that wildfires cause. We have been evacuated from our homes on numerous occasions due to wildfire. There is also the threat of earthquake or other natural disasters.
There are steps we can take ahead of time to prepare ourselves physically and mentally for such disasters. Just making a list of the things that are most important to us and having it handy will be a great help when the time comes to evacuate. Ready, Set, Go! will help you put that list together.
