Designed specifically for homeowners, this is a critical resource for anyone wanting to reduce the risks to both their family and property from the threats of natural hazards. The handbook covers basic information on emergency preparedness, evacuation planning, flood/wind insurance, and steps to take to protect your property. All five Gulf states have developed these handbooks and disseminated them through various avenues including emergency management agencies, home improvement stores, and community festivals.
