Terrorism Preparedness

The World Trade Center gone.  The Pentagon attacked.  A field in Pennsylvania littered with debris.  On September 11, 2001, our nation was reminded that we must be ever vigilant against the threat of terrorist activities.  The loss of nearly 3,000 lives that day has raised further uncertainty about the future and increased stress levels for many who worry about possible attacks.  Nevertheless, there are things you can do to prepare for the unexpected and reduce the stress that you may feel now, and later should another emergency arise.  Taking preparatory action can reassure you and your children that you can exert a measure of control even in the face of such events.

What you can do to prepare:
Finding out what can happen is the first step.  Once you have determined the events possible and their potential in your community, it is important that you discuss them with your family or household.  Develop a disaster plan together.

Create an Emergency Communications Plan

Establish a Meeting Place

Assemble a Disaster Supplies Kit
