Guam - Although it has been years since Guam has been in the path of a typhoon according to Guam Homeland Security public information officer Alyssa Benito the chances of a tropical cyclone occurring is increased this year, making it all the more important for residents to prepare themselves for specific hazards through live drills and exercises.

"So we have several goals through this campaign and one of the goals is to increase residents understanding of what disasters can happen on our island and when we are most vulnerable to these disasters and more importantly we want people to take action that's why we are doing live drills," she said.

To ensure that residents know what to do in case of a natural disaster GHS will be handing out informational brochures to motorists this Wednesday at the intersection of ITC Building from 4 to 6 pm.
