Identify your own level of preparedness should disaster strike in your area. Visit the Red Cross site: http://www.redcross.org/get-help/prepare-for-emergencies/be-red-cross-ready to review details on disaster preparedness kit, plan and information.
Discuss your response to this information. Were you surprised at your level of readiness? What steps will you take to prepare yourself and your family for the possibility of disaster? How can you share this information with your community? Your initial posting should be at least 400 words in length and utilize at least one scholarly source other than the textbook.
