Make a Family Disaster Preparedness Plan

​Disasters can happen anytime and anywhere. Severe thunderstorms, tornadoes, floods, fires, snow and ice storms, and hazardous material spills are all hazards that are real possibilities in our region. When they occur, you may not have much time to respond. It is important to take steps ahead of time, such as putting an emergency kit together, making plans, and having ways to stay informed.
