The Community Y2K Readiness Tool
Designed as a ready reference tool for individual communities, this poster lists potential severe problems that could result from Y2K, as well as actions that communities and families could take to prepare themselves. Some of the potential effects of Y2K, according to this poster, include seaports no longer delivering food, factories no longer operating, and specialized medical equipment failing.
