The three major elements the Red Cross (2017) recommends when preparing for a disaster. 1. Discuss how to prepare and respond to disasters that are likely in your area (work, school home); 2. Identify responsibilities for everyone in the household; 3. Practice as many of these elements as possible.
putting these steps into reality, what specific things would you plan for in your perspective areas? In mine it would be drought, micro bursts, and monsoon.
