Make a Plan Build a Kit Get Involved 3 days, 3 ways
In order to be fully responsive in an emergency or a disaster, we encourage GBARC members and their families to prepare themselves for surviving the initial days of an event on their own.  As a minimum we recommend that they make a plan, build a kit, and get involved in community support.  Even if you are not a GBARC member, it will be worth your while to take a few minutes to read about it here.
