Be Informed
The best way to combat disaster is to be prepared. To be fully prepared , it is important to be informed. Being informed means knowing what can happen during a disaster. Being informed also means knowing what types of disasters can happen. Emergency kits and plans are important, but you need more than that. You must be aware of information specific to your community.

Disaster can strike anywhere or anytime. Knowing what to do, where to go, and other important information could make a big difference in your decision making. The Cleveland Department of Public Health assists the community in these times of need in many ways. One of these ways is the Cities Readiness Initiative. The Cities Readiness Initiative helps make the city and its' citizens prepare for such disasters.
