Many people do not realize the impact that storms and natural disasters can have on our society, not to mention other events that have a profound inpact on our comfort of life.

Disasters, in no matter what form they come place untold burdons on our society costing tax payers many millions, if not billions of dollars annually. The solution is simple.

The Emergency Management Institute has numerous “free” courses that will train you to fully understand how our emergency response system works, and train you to be a community leader in the event of a disaster. These courses are free and they are serious in nature.

I recommend that every American Citizen take any number of these courses in order to better serve your community in the event of disaster. National disasters are one of the biggest health threats to face our nation. With hurricane Katrina still fresh on our minds
we were caught fully by surprise. The problem it seems is not enough people are taking advantage of the free training offered by the Emergency Management Institute.

The Emergency Management Institute offers the following “free” training to every American Citizen…please take a few hours to enroll, most of the courses take less that 3 days to complete and you will receive a certificate of completion upon completion of the course.

What kind of emergrncy kit does the average american need to survive until Federal help can arrive? Learn more on the Emergency Management website.

  1. With FEMA being in charge, it’s a sure bet you need to have a survival kit for at least three months – longer if possible.
