Preparing for Disasters and Emergencies
The role of Emergency Management is to protect lives, property and environment from natural and/or man-made disasters through preparation, mitigation, response and recovery and to maximize the protection and promotion of public safety, health and welfare during large-scale emergencies.
It's important for everyone to plan for a disaster. Disasters can strike quickly and without warning. What will you do for food? How will you communicate with family members? What medications do you need? What will you do with your pets? How can you help your community?
Many questions need to be answered and every family has a variety of needs that they will be concerned about. Some planning on your part could play a large role in protecting you, your family. and your community.
