RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - State and federal officials are urging Virginians to resolve to prepare their families for emergencies in 2014.

Michael Cline, state coordinator of emergency management, says there's no more important resolution to make than to renew personal efforts to be sure families, homes and businesses are ready for disasters.

Officials say preparing for an emergency can be as simple as knowing who to call, where to meet and what to pack in the event of a disaster.

Individuals and families can fill out an emergency plan, post it in homes and share it with family and friends.

Free plan worksheets, wallet cards and emergency supply checklists are available at http://www.ReadyVirginia.gov .
