The campaign explores a different area of emergency preparedness will be explored each week, including reconnecting with family after a disaster, planning for specific needs before a disaster, building an emergency kit and practicing for an emergency.

The agency plans to post daily preparedness tips through Facebook and Twitter.

Jonathon Monken is director of the Illinois Emergency Management Agency. He says: "Spending just a few minutes today on personal preparedness can help you and your family stay safe when disaster strikes."
