Preparedness Tips

Disasters happen anytime, anywhere. Whether it's a hazardous material spill, wildfire, severe winter or summer storm or a natural hazard -- such as a tornado, flood or earthquake -- you may not have much time to respond. The effects of a disaster or emergency can vary widely. A hazardous material spill could require an instant evacuation. A winter storm could confine you to your home for several days. Natural disasters could cut off such basic services as gas, water, electricity and communications.

Following a disaster or emergency, local officials and relief workers will be on scene, but cannot reach everyone immediately. Help could reach you in hours or it may take days. Your best protection for you and your family is to be prepared until help arrives.

The best disaster preparedness starts with personal protection and safety. An attitude of personal responsibility allows individuals, families and businesses to identify, prioritize and mitigate issues that arise in disasters.
