FDLP LibGuide & Other Resources from GPO on Natural Disasters

September is National Preparedness Month. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration recently reported in 2017 natural disasters cost the United States $312.7 billion dollars. This total represents near 20% of the costs of all natural disasters since 1980. This month we are featuring the FDLP LibGuide - Natural Disasters.

The Natural Disasters LibGuide provides information on how to prepare for natural disasters, as well as sources of information on general recovery. The guide also lists resources for specific types of disasters such as hurricanes, earthquakes, and more. The resources featured include links to a variety of Federal agencies including Ready.gov, FEMA, the CDC, in addition to links to websites, apps, information for kids, and GPO publications to assist in disaster preparation and where to access help when necessary.

In addition to this LibGuide, GPO also makes available guidance for libraries on what to do if a disaster strikes:

Finally, GPO has posted a new Government Book Talk blog on National Preparedness Month. On behalf of everyone at GPO, please stay safe and be prepared.
