Prepare For A Natural Disaster

Prepare For A Natural Disaster
Sayre (WENY) -- Last year's floods and this summer's tornado may have you thinking about what you'd do in a natural disaster. The Greater Valley E.M.S. in Sayre is encouraging people to "Get Your Stuff Together."

That's the title of a free downloadable book, which serves as guide to getting through emergencies. It has tips on preparing your family to be ready to evacuate in 10 minutes, and a checklist of personal and financial belongings to have ready to go.

"September 2012 is National Preparedness Month, so we're encouraging individuals and families to get themselves ready in the event of natural disasters," said Derrick Hall from Great Valley E.M.S. "It's timely with the flood that we've had, the tornadoes that we've had recently and the upcoming snow storms."
