We hope that you’ll use Disasterrally to discover everything you need to know about natural and human-made disasters. That way, you can create a survival plan and prepare for emergencies.
While it may sound over the top to think about survival in the case of nuclear attack or even war at home, it’s better to have a plan. We also cover what to do in an active shooter situation so that you can prepare.
People put off designing an emergency plan in case of natural disasters like tornadoes and earthquakes. Yet these threats are real in many parts of the country. Your chances of survival may be slim in some cases if you don’t have food storage supply or access to medical care or clean water.
Plus, you also need to know where to seek shelter and how you’ll get there. So we made sure to include a list of resources for you to use in your emergency plan. You only need to look to Hurricane Katrina for an example of what happens to an unprepared community in a natural disaster.
Not only did the Hurricane destroy the city, but the disaster also lasted for weeks as levees filled and overflowed, and there was loss of power throughout the city. Even hospitals couldn’t take care of everyone who needed help. The truth is, emergency services may not be able to reach you right away.
That’s why it’s essential that you know what to do to take care of yourself and your family. Here at disasterrally.com — we have articles that teach you how to build an emergency kit, with everything you need from food, water, first aid supplies, flashlights, and more. You’ll learn about what kind of supplies you should store in your home, car, and even in a bag to take to school or work.
In addition to your emergency kits, you’ll also want to prep your home for natural disasters such as earthquakes. To that end, we have informative articles like 10 Ways To Minimize Earthquake Damage To Your Home, that’s more of an earthquake 101 guide. We’ll teach you to spot the warning signs of a tornado as well as understanding the different types of tornados.
Here at disasterrally.com — we want to help you prepare for a natural disaster as well as human-made emergencies. What’s more, we want to help you with what to do afterward. Because, unfortunately, after the storm has passed, there’s always the damage left.
For example, how do you know when to turn off the natural gas, water, or electricity in your house? We can help you figure out the answers.
