Emergency Management & Planning

Community Emergency Management Coordinator – Jeff Edwards

Do you know what do in a tornado, flood or winter storm? Do you have everything you need during a major emergency?

This online tool will help you create an Emergency Preparedness Action Plan for your household. Your completed plan will:

  • List the specific steps you need to take to get prepared
  • Provide tips on hazards that might affect your community
  • Include information related to special needs you may have (for example, information for people with disabilities and pet owners)

You can’t predict an emergency, but you can prepare for one. Take action today!

Build an Emergency Kit

Your emergency survival kit should have everything you need to be safe and take care of yourself and your family for at least three days. This checklist outlines all the essentials, items to meet your unique needs, and items to have ready in case you have to leave your home.
