Resources and Reference Materials on Emergency Preparedness

The consequences of unexpected emergency situations due to natural disasters can be life changing. This is especially true for families who are low-income or live in areas that lack resources like medical facilities, community centers, public transportation, and grocery stores. The following resources were developed to help families, and can be utilized by CHWs to help prepare families, for potentially life-threatening emergency situations.
