6 out of 10 American Households Do Not Have a Family Emergency Plan
As the New Year approaches, FEMA is reminding Americans to Resolve to be Ready in 2014. Taking simple steps to prepare now can make all the difference in the event of an emergency. Disasters can occur without warning and each and every family member needs to know what to do in case one does. Ready.gov/kids has all the info you need to start the conversation with your family including age-appropriate materials, template communications plans, emergency kit checklists and disaster fact sheets.
This New Year, make sure every member of your family knows:
• Who to call
• Where to meet
• What to pack
By making a resolution to take a few simple steps to prepare in advance, you can minimize the impact an emergency could have on your family, home or community. For more information visit Ready.gov/prepared2014 or follow Facebook and Twitter @Readygov.

Ready is a national campaign by FEMA and the Ad Council dedicated to educating and empowering Americans to be prepared in the event of natural or man-made disasters. Emergency preparedness tips, tools and resources are available at Ready.gov/kids.
