As part of the City's initiative to increase communications, we are offering a 12 part monthly series highlighting emergency preparedness. Use these tools to prepare yourself for an emergency event.
Your family needs a plan that tells everyone: where to meet if you have to evacuate; who you’ve
identified as an out-of-state “family contact”; how to get emergency information in your community; and how to take care of your family pets.
When preparing for an emergency, plan on having enough supplies to get you and your family through at least the first 72 hours. After a major emergency, there’s a good chance that traditional emergency response teams will be too busy to take care of you and your family. You need to prepare your home and neighborhood.
