Surviving Disasters: A Citizen's Emergency Handbook
|April 03 2010|
No matter where you live, your community may experience a natural or manmade disaster — a tornado, flood, winter storm, earthquake, fire, nuclear power plant accident or terrorist attack.
In any type of disaster, lives can be saved if people are prepared for the emergency, and know what actions to take when it occurs. This handbook can help. It was compiled by the Illinois Department of Public Health, with assistance from the Office of Homeland Security, the American Red Cross, the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Illinois Emergency Management Agency. This handbook contains information and guidance on what can be done to enhance survival in the event of a disaster.
Individuals and families can prepare for any type of emergency by using the basic information in this handbook. The actions recommended are general in nature and should supplement specific instructions issued by local authorities.
For information on your community’s disaster plan, contact your local emergency management office.
