Albany - - It's a New Year's resolution you may not only want to make, but also keep.

The Department of Homeland Security says your New Year's resolutions should include getting ready for a disaster.

Emergency preparedness workers suggest you make a plan, so your family knows what to do and how to get back together if a catastrophe were to strike.

Also research local emergency plans. Albany-Dougherty Emergency Management Agency workers say also have a stash of essential items on hand to last you three days.  

"Such things as canned goods, water, sanitation, medications if you're on it, money or credit cards that you can survive with for a period of time for 72 hours," says Deputy Director Jim Vaught.

A change of clothing, a map, and battery-operated radio are also recommended.
