Most people believe that city services will be able to provide assistance during any disaster but if the situation is large enough, that may not be the case. During a disaster, calls for assistance are prioritized based on severity. Your situation may not be as severe as others in the community. There may be a time when you will need to be self-sufficient for a while before help can arrive.
