    The statement suggests that it is important to have two kits prepared in case of an emergency.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In this plan, each family member is assigned the same friend or relative to contact in case of an emergency.

    The correct answer is "Joining Citizen Corps." This is because the other options listed are all actions that can be taken as part of making a plan for emergencies. Joining Citizen Corps, on the other hand, is not directly related to creating a personal emergency plan. Citizen Corps is a community-based program in the United States that encourages individuals to get involved in emergency preparedness and response efforts, but it is not a necessary step in creating a personal emergency plan.
