					 PREPARE ALASKA
Making Alaska’s communities better, safer places to live.
  67% of those polled feel it is
“very important” to prepare for a
     catastrophic disaster.
             Yet…..
 • Only 2 in 10 Americans feel “very prepared” for a catastrophic event.
 • Only half of the parents polled knew the disaster plans of their child’s school
 or day care.
 • Only one in ten American households has a family emergency plan, a
 disaster kit, and training in first aid and CPR.
 (from Whirlin Worldwide’s National Quorum. June 4-7, 2004)
       Disasters DO Happen
• Earthquakes happen
  every day in Alaska.
• 3.5 Alaskans lose
  their homes each day
