Disaster Readiness Index

The Disaster Readiness Index is a short 9-questions checklist which focuses on the things you need to know, the actions you should be taking, and your understanding of your environment before and during a disaster. The result of the checklist is your very own Disaster Readiness Index, measured upon a base score of 100. You will be awarded up to 5 stars.

Answer the questions to the best of your knowledge. There is no time limit. The result page will include suggestions on your areas of improvement. You may take the test as many times as you like.
