A multi-state campaign is encouraging everyone to have a plan ready in case of an emergency.

The Gear Up, Get Ready community preparedness campaign says every household should take key steps in preparing for a disaster.

Sunday they were in the West Town neighborhood working with people to help them create a plan, make emergency contact cards and gather emergency supplies.

The campaign helps households in Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin.
