Background Information: According to the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction, climate change and extreme weather related events have caused a surge in frequency and severity of natural disasters over the last many years. Preparing for natural disasters (wildfires, floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, etc.) can be overwhelming. In fact >70% of US households are ill-prepared for natural disasters. Three primary reasons account for this - (1) Lack of information: Families lack the knowledge on how best to prepare or the information to prepare for an emergency is not easily understandable; (2) Lack of Conviction: Many don’t believe they can manage the risks or don’t think they are at risk for a disaster or it seems intimidating to prepare for an emergency/natural disaster; and (3) Lack of Time and Resources: Families or individuals don’t have time to perform different activities to prepare for an emergency or don’t have money to buy emergency preparedness items.
