Before an Emergency

It is critical that everyone is prepared for an emergency.   In the event of a large-scale emergency, first responders may not be able to immediately assist you or your family.  It is your responsibility to prepare yourself by:

  • Making a plan
  • Make sure everyone in the family knows the plan 
  • Be trained in first aid 
  • Having an emergency supply kit
  • Be informed about the kinds of emergencies that may occur in your area. 
  • Volunteer in your community
