Benefits of Emergency, Crisis and Disaster Preparation

 

There are real benefits to being prepared.

 

Being prepared can reduce fear, anxiety, and losses that accompany disasters. Communities, families, and individuals should know what to do. Preparing for an emergency now, provides you your best chance of survival, in the event of an actual emergency. Emergency preparedness should always be considered in the home and workplace for any unexpected event. Emergency, crisis and disaster preparation could greatly increase the operational readiness and resilience of our Tarzana community residents and businesses to respond to, and recover from, a major incident that could significantly disrupt our community by providing a plan of action to accomplish the following goals:

 

·           Safety of human life

and

·           Protection of property
