EXTREME EVENTS

                                                        BE PREPARED,

                                                             NOT SCARED.

 

The frequency and intensity of all types of extreme events (heat waves, cold snaps, floods, storms, lightning, earthquakes, etc.) is expected to increase in the future.

 

Exposure to extreme events, natural or man-made, is not just a nuisance, it’s lethal.

Do you know how to protect you and your family?
