Personal Preparedness Challenge

Are you prepared?

Emergencies and disasters can happen anytime and anywhere. They typically strike without warning and disrupt hundreds of thousands of lives each year. Each emergency and disaster has its own lasting effects on individuals, families, and communities. Through preparedness efforts, you can help reduce the fear and anxieties related to these unknown situations as well as reduce the immediate and long term risks to you and your families by preparing you and your loved ones for the best response possible to a real disaster situation. Remember, awareness and preparedness will save lives!

The Office of Emergency Preparedness at UCLA Health System has developed a tool entitled “Get Ready, Stay Ready” which provides a comprehensive 12-month guide for assisting families with their personal preparedness efforts.
