Personal Preparedness

NPM 2015

Emergencies, big or small, happen to everyone.  You may not have a choice as to whether or not you are affected – but you can choose to do something to prepare so that your recovery is more manageable.  It is important to plan in advance: how you will connect with one another; how you will get back together; and what you will do in different situations.  Preparedness is the key to recovery.
