M.E.M.A. Promotes Preparedness 

M.E.M.A. stresses the four steps to preparedness as &quot:get informed,&quot: &quot:make a plan,&quot: &quot:make a kit,&quot: and &quot:maintain your plan and kit.&quot:

Rayna Leibowitz of M.E.M.A. says the elderly and the disabled are among the most vulnerable. Saying that for that demographic having a support network of family or friends is vital.

&quot:If people are prepared, informed, if they make a kit, if they have a plan they weather the storm so much better.&quot:
