The weather forecast is calling for warming temperatures over the next week which will result in rising creeks, streams and rivers across the region. In the spirit of Emergency Preparedness week, take a moment to learn about how to be prepared to protect yourself and your family during emergencies.
Know the hazards – become familiar with the hazards surrounding your home and within your community.
Make a plan – An emergency plan is a playbook for how you and your household will respond to a disaster. Knowing what to do will reduce anxiety and help keep you focused and safe.
Build your kit – Clothes, toothbrush, phone charger, batteries and first aid kit are all items that should be in your Grab and Go bag. Be prepared by having these items packed and ready to go in case of an emergency.
