Preparedness For Residents

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about preparedness to protect yourself, your family and your community.  Plan ahead to be a survivor, not a victim, of a disaster.  By preparing today, you are also helping our first responders save lives and property in the event of an emergency.

Because we know that natural and man-made disasters can happen suddenly and at any time, these links provide you with information about the importance of planning and preparedness.

They will help you in preparing a family communication plan and developing an emergency kit so that you can take care of yourself and your family during the days immediately following a major disaster.
