Natural disasters often strike unexpectedly and cause immense damage to life and property. Preparing our lives and property ahead of natural disasters can reduce risk, reduce impact, limit losses, increase safety, reduce suffering, and allow individuals and communities to recover more quickly from the aftermath.
