Disaster Preparedness

Disasters can happen suddenly and can be of many types- natural disasters including ice storms, tornados, floods and heat, bioterrorism, and chemical disasters.

Preparedness is everyone's job. Not just government agencies, but all sectors of society -- service providers, businesses, civic and volunteer groups, industry associations and neighborhood associations, as well as every individual citizen -- should plan ahead for disaster. During the first few hours or days following a disaster, essential services may not be available. People must be ready to act on their own.
