The site includes tips for what to have on hand during an emergency, what to bring if you’re evacuating, and resources to help with the aftermath — including a number to call if you’re concerned about the effects of disaster-related exposures if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding (that would be the at 1-866-626-OTIS or 1-866-626-6847).
