Preparing for the unexpected, such as making a READY Kit and developing a family communications plan, are the same for both a natural or human-caused emergency. However, there are important differences among disasters that will affect the decisions you make and the actions you take. Some natural disasters are easily predicted, others happen with little or no warning. Planning what to do in advance is an important part of being ready.
