The Basics of Disaster Preparedness: Incase “It Will Never Happen to Us” Happens Tomorrow

While we cannot cover the vast about of information related to disaster preparedness, it is our hope that we can give PLASC members enough information to get started. Basic information covered will include who to call for help, where to find resources, what supplies they should have on hand, how to handle wet items, and the importance of documenting your event.
