Be Prepared

Although natural disasters are not something that we think about day-to-day, disasters such as interface wildfires, floods, landslides or tornadoes; technological or environmental accidents, such as chemical spills; or service disruptions, such as power failures during the winter or severe storms, even pandemics, can strike any community, including ours, at any time. Make sure you are prepared. 

Knowing what to do when a disaster strikes will help you better control the situation and be in a position to recover more quickly. While a Regional Emergency Plan exists, no community is equipped to handle all the demands of a catastrophe. Help your community by preparing yourself. Make sure everyone in your family knows what to do before, during and after an emergency.

Pet and animal owners need to consider their responsibilities for their animals during emergencies and include them in emergency planning. Find out more on Pet Preparedness.

Also consider individual special needs when planning for emergencies.
