Be Aware! Be Prepared!

Be Aware!   Be Prepared!

The unexpected can happen at any time:  a fire, a chemical spill on the highway, severe thunderstorm, flooding, tornado, or some other emergency.  Local responders and officials can be overwhelmed after a major disaster, and emergency personnel may not be able to reach you right away.  What you do to prepare can make a difference!  Individuals who are prepared can be ready to take immediate actions during and after an emergency.  

After most disasters, you and your family should be ready to be self-sufficient for at least three days by providing for your own food, water, shelter and health needs.  Take time now to assemble an emergency supply kit for yourself and your family, and even your pets. 

Be aware of changing weather situations and decide the best methods for your to receive severe weather warnings – radio, television, Internet, text messaging or NOAA weather radio.

For more information on being prepared click on the document titles below and on the Quick Links to the right of this article.
