Residents and businesses of our community also have roles to play. By doing a few basic things to prepare yourself, your family, and your business, you can help us become a prepared community. The more planning you do before a disaster, the better you will be able to cope during an emergency.

Whether to protect your family or your business, you need to take some time to consider the risks that we all face and take the right measures to protect what is important to you. Families can be prepared by planning and working together as a team. Before you begin developing your family emergency and disaster plan, take a few moments to consider the possible emergencies or potential disasters you could face. These situations and events could affect you, your family or your community. Your best protection in any emergency or disaster is in knowing what to do.
