When Do Disasters Occur?

Disasters can occur any time and almost any place. It’s important that you know the dangers that may occur in your area before a disaster strikes. Do you live in a flood-prone area? Are you in the eruption zone of an active volcano? Make sure you know the dangers of your area BEFORE the disaster strikes and, as always, have a plan.
