3. What basic preparation do people need to have around their home for preparedness? At school? At work?
4. What are the important drills in preparation?
5. What should your children know?
6. What about people with pets, what should they do?
7. How does one know to shelter-in-place versus evacuate? And how does a person prepare for either possibility?
8. What about important papers, photos, family heirlooms?
9. Do you have a list of important Do’s and Don’ts?
