List of Emergency Preparedness Links

[Ed. note: The following showed up in our inbox courtesy of a public service organization in North Carolina. Although the content in each link may not be 100% relevant for our readers, there is sufficient content regarding emergency preparedness to be of good value, especially at this time of year.]

With the sudden downpours to which we’re prone at this time of year, and in preparation for storms in the next few months, this is a great time to become educated and prepared if a flood disaster should strike.
