Being Prepared At Home

Protect yourself and your family by being prepared for emergency situations:

Before

an emergency strikes, have a plan in place.

During

an emergency, keep yourself informed in case you must take action.

  • Listen for emergency instructions and updates on radio and television, and from agencies responding to the emergency, such as the fire department or Sheriff’s Office.
  • If you are asked to take action, such as evacuating an area, take that action seriously.

After

an emergency, know that recovery assistance is available. Help is there for those affected by the emergency through personal loss, or for people who are simply having a hard time coping emotionally with the events.
