If you aren’t convinced that getting prepared is worth the effort, this post on EDENotes, the official blog of the Extension Disaster Education Network, can change your mind. In addition to helping you avoid panic when a disaster hits, being prepared can help you survive on your own and keep in touch with family members. It can also help you avoid or reduce damage, retain important papers, save money, and ultimately recover faster.
