Forewarned is forearmed.
"Why worry? There are no risks where I live!"
Nowhere is completely immune from risks. Natural phenomena (storm, hail, heavy rainfall, flooding, etc.) can happen anywhere. Even a pleasant family day out on a hot summer day can be transformed by a traffic accident, if you are stuck in a blistering hot car for hours.
A large industrial fire near where you live, a gas leak, a train accident, can all lead to you facing an emergency at home, at work or on the road, despite every precaution. Zero risk just does not exist.
As far as these potential emergencies are concerned, it is important to find out about the various routine or exceptional risks that can arise.
Find out about the actions that you can take to keep yourself and your family safe.
By finding out what you can do BEFORE, DURING and AFTER an emergency, you will be ready to act fast, especially when every minute counts.

- Put together an emergency kit
