Are You Ready? is a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) class that provides the most comprehensive source on individual, family, and community preparedness. This class provides the public the most current and up to date disaster preparedness information currently available.
Are You Ready? provides a step by step approach to disaster preparedness with group discussions talking about local issues - how to identify hazards that affect their local area, how to become informed about local emergency plans, and how to develop and maintain an emergency communications plan and disaster supply kit. Other topics covered include evacuation, emergency public shelters, animals in disaster, and information specific to people with disabilities.
Are You Ready? also provides in-depth information on specific hazards including what to do before, during, and after each hazard type. The following hazards are covered: Floods, Tornadoes, Hurricanes, Thunderstorms and Lightning, Winter Storms and Extreme Cold, Extreme Heat, Earthquakes, Volcanoes, Landslide and Debris Flows (Mudslide), Tsunamis, Fires, Wildfires, Hazardous Materials Incidents, Household Chemical Emergencies, Nuclear Power Plant, and Terrorism (including Explosion, Biological, Chemical, Nuclear, and Radiological hazards).
