Make a Plan. Make a Kit. Be Informed. Be Ready.
You never know when an emergency may strike our area. It is important that you are
prepared and know what to do to protect your family and your property.
Ask yourself these questions.
- Do I know what emergencies or disasters are most likely to occur in this area?
- Do I have a family disaster plan in place and have we practiced it?
- Do I know where I can go for help in the case of an emergency?
- Do I have an emergency preparedness kit?
- Has anyone in my household been trained in the proper actions to take in the
event of an emergency?
If you answered "No" to any of these questions there are a number or resources available to help you prepare for any event.
