What preparedness topics do Arizonans want to learn more about:
I'm really interested in wildfire/fire emergency preparedness. We live in New River very close to the National Forest and if there were a fire out there, it would reach us very quickly. Since we are rural and lots of native plants and dry weeds around us, we really need to know what to do to help ourselves.
Something regarding earthquakes and tornados would also be helpful. You never know when there is going to be a freak of nature and one of these occured in our area. We already deal with flooding and fires, but no one talks about earthquakes and tornados. And they are just as important.
What happens if cell phones go out, like what happened during hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico? Should we learn ham radio, or know how to find someone who does?
I'm very physically limited, and I have many meds and medical assistive devices necessary to sleep, bathe, etc. So I just don't know where to start.
