The Federal Emergency Management Agency launched the Ready.Gov website  to educate and empower Americans to prepare for and respond to emergencies including natural and man-made disasters.  Now you might think your next real emergency is that exam you have coming up that you are not fully prepared for.  Seriously, however, we all need to avail ourselves of the valuable information on that website for use now and most importantly in the future. You never know what situation you might find yourself in.  Start by visiting the website and by looking at these short publications on Preparing for Emergencies and what to include in an Emergency Supply List.
