Disaster Kits and Other Basic Steps

The most visible messaging encourages the public to take 3 steps: (1) to be informed about hazards in their region, (2) to make an emergency plan and (3) to have a disaster supply kit. However, research has shown that many individuals and families have not taken these basic steps. We’d like to hear your thoughts on whether you think the 3 steps are an effective way to talk about preparedness, what is missing from preparedness communications, and if you have a different way of talking about preparedness with your friends and family.
