Our world is not as safe as we would all like to believeâ € ” Anything can happen. Disasters occur on an almost daily basis all around the globe. Major events in recent years have included the devastating tsunamis striking Japan and the coast of Sumatra, Hurricane Katrina, the rash of tornadoes that swept across the U.S. in 2011, the deadly earthquake in Haiti, and the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and of course, most recently, Hurricane Sandy, from which many on the Eastern Seaboard are still recovering. We need to be prepared for fires that burn out of control and the spread of disease as well as terrorist strikes and pandemics. If any of these disasters were to occur, would you be ready?
