What is emergency preparedness?
Emergency preparedness is being able to respond to an emergency in amatter of seconds. You could be directed to leave your home/apartment byan official or there could be a fire or gas leak. There are many reasons why you have to be quick on your feet in an emergency.
• Is your apartment very cold in the wintertime?
• Are your energy bills high in the winter time?
• Have you noticed any issues with the air quality in your community?
