That is a good tip, MaraM. I would add about fire safety of having a handy fire extinguisher around. Also, if ever one is caught by fire, it would be best to roll over and not panic. I hope I have contributed useful tips

Actually, the list for education is almost endless. One doesn't have to do it alone.
Pick up a local phone book. Look at Red Cross, Boy/Girl Scouts of America, YMCA/YWCA, ROTC or any other fraternal organization.
Most if not all offer education and training in "survival" skills.
All should have first aid, CPR, life saving, and basic survial skills training.
children as young as 4 years old or before will benefit from Red Cross swimming classes, etc.
Teach all your children to dial 911.
Two year olds can do it! Write 911 on a 3x5 card and paste it below or to the phones.
This list grows as one seeks to accept other challenges.
BC is not really the forum for such education, though it's great you brought this subject up here.
It serves to remind us all again to get the education and help others to do so also.

In a time of crisis brought on by a natural disaster, remember to focus on the task at hand—survival—and don't waste mental energy thinking about who did or didn't cut this or that funding for levee repairs.
In the event of a disaster of "biblical proportions," FEMA may not be your best option. You may wish to consult your Bible instead.
In any disaster, bodies will usually be stacked like cordwood before FEMA can respond, so remember that a "cord" of wood is 8 feet high by 12 feet long by 4 feet wide, and stack accordingly.
