Evelyn- earthquakes scare me more than hurricanes.  That said...it's a good idea to take these classes just to be prepared.

When living in areas that are subject to mother nature's furry, should always be prepared.

Mark, Did you have to remind me?  It has been a warm dry winter, I think we will likely have a very warm summer.

Evelyn, have not thought about this topic too much because I live in the Northeast-HOWEVER, we actually got one in 2011 and, we've had tornadoes.  So, with climate and ecological change comes geological surprises.

Sorry to all who commented.  My email is acting up and I didn't receive notice about your comments.  Thanks to you all.

Sara:  It is a very good program.  And it is Free.

Kathy:  The classes are held all over the US and other places.  Each class covers preparedness for all disasters which include hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, fires, etc.

Kathy:  Yes, each place has it's own problems.  Everyone should be prepared.

Mark:  You said it.  There are CERT groups in the South which can help you prepare.  Google them.

Anna:  I am a member of the CERT executive committee and feel it is my duty to get the word out.  We should all be prepared.

Sara:  If you are not prepared, please give your local disaster preparedness office a call and take some classes.  Always a good thing to do.

Joanna:  Any natural disaster injuries can be mitigated by being prepared, even if it is only BY having a kit and learning CPR.
