According to a poll done by Kelton Research in 2012, 9 out of 10 Americans expect a world disaster to occur in the next quarter century and 56% said they aren’t prepared for it. Getting prepared can be as easy as putting a kit together, making a plan, and being informed. But it’s also essential to know what type of emergencies are likely to occur in your area and during what time of the year.
