Emergency Preparedness

Communities, families and individuals should know what to do in the event of a fire and where to seek shelter during a tornado.  They should be ready to evacuate their homes and take refuge in public shelters and know how to care for their basic medical needs.  Being prepared can reduce fear, anxiety and losses that accompany disasters.  Here are some important resources for you.
