    Resources and Information on Emergency Management and Disaster Preparedness

    Below are links to different websites and documents to provide you with the information and ideas to better prepare yourself and your loved ones for the next emergency or diasaster to strike our community. Investigate your options, then prepare yourself an emergency kit, because you may need to survive on your own after an emergency. This means having your own food, water, and other supplies in sufficient quantity to last for at least three days. Local officials and relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster, but they cannot reach everyone immediately. You could get help in hours, or it might take days. In addition, basic services such as electricity, gas, water, sewage treatment, and telephones may be cut off for days, or even a week or longer.

    Create a small stockpile of necessities and create an emergency plan for your family and/or business. Your stockpile can be built up over time and does not have to be extravagent. Pick up items when they are on sale or with coupons to minimize any impact to your family budget.

    Please, don't forget your pet!

    You will go to bed with the knowledge that you have done what you can and will be prepared for the next emergency.
