Disaster Preparedness

Make a Disaster Supplies Kit

The basics include:

  • Batteries/flashlights
  • Emergency radios
  • Extra clothing
  • First aid supplies and medications
  • Food
  • Personal documents
  • Water

Don’t stick to the basics-go to the Ready website.

Make a Preparedness Plan

Figure out how you and your family will get emergency alerts and warnings, where you will meet during emergencies, how you will get in touch if cell phones aren’t working, and how you will let your loved ones know you are safe. Go to the Ready website.

Be Informed

Join your local Community Emergency Response Team, Red Cross, Fire Department, Search and Rescue, church organizations, or any other entity that can arm you with additional information about and skills to deal with disaster preparedness and response.
