emergency preparedness program for Missouri. The Missouri
Department of Health and Senior Services sponsor’s the program.
READY IN 3 focuses on three steps you can take to prepare for
many kinds of emergencies.
children (grandchildren, guests) know what to do if a bad
storm hits or fire breaks out? Where do they go if they have
to evacuate the house/area?
2. Prepare a kit for home, car and work.
3. Listen for information about what to do and where to go
during an actual emergency. Do you have a NOAA
weather/hazard alert radio available? They broadcast up-to-
date information on all emergencies that you can easily
program to certain county areas.
