Alaska’s Family Readiness Program: preparedness for families, communities, and kids

As an Alaskan, you know how important it is to be prepared for hard weather, including snowstorms, floods, and extreme cold. But you may not have considered the impact of a large-scale disaster—such as an earthquake, tsunami, or volcanic eruption—could have on our communities and our families.

Prepare now and keep your family safe. The material on this website is designed to help you:

  • Prepare for disasters;
  • Respond with low stress; and
  • Rebuild your healthy family.

Alaska’s Family Readiness Program is supported in part by a grant from the CDC’s Public Health Emergency Preparedness. We are housed within the Section of Women’s, Children’s, and Family Health and work closely with our partners in the Section of Emergency Programs.

The Section of Women’s, Children’s, and Family Health is dedicated to promoting women’s health throughout the lifespan. Our mission is to promote optimum health outcomes for all Alaskan women, children, teens, and their families.
