The choices made before, during and after a disaster or emergency can affect whether you may live, be injured or die.
Your own lifestyle and the current state of your mind and body will contribute to how you handle a stressful event.
Everyone's situation is different. The information here is general information to use as a starting point for every family.
Every disaster is different. The information given is considered the best advice for most circumstances.
We will not be with you in a disaster, so do the best you can in the circumstances in which you find yourself.
For example, in a house or apartment fire, it is suggested you do not jump from upper story windows. By jumping, you could injure yourself or die. You should wait for the firemen to rescue you.
However, if the fire department is not yet in position to perform a rescue, and the fire is going to consume you, you may choose to jump.
The sad truth is that some people may be injured or die during a disaster or emergency no matter how prepared you are.
That is Life.
