Being prepared for an emergency goes beyond just having a smoke alarm or extra food in the pantry.
This year, emergency officials are calling on everyone to be more prepared in case of a disaster.
We visited with the firefighters at Grand Junction Fire Station One Thursday morning and they had tips on what more you can do.
This is National Emergency Preparedness Month and the slogan is: Are you ready, or are you ready?
Mike Page with the Grand Junction Fire Department has already talked with us about the importance of having supplies that will last about three days.
But he also answers questions about what needs to be in an emergency kit, what are the most important items, what else to include that you might not think about, how to communicate with your family and setting up a plan.
