Post Date:08/21/2019 4:01 PM
Each September, emergency and disaster response agencies across our nation undertake a month long effort to educate the public on disaster preparedness. Preparedness is an essential step in disaster recovery because it focuses on a community's   coordinated effort to lessen the impact of local disasters. The most impactful measures  a person, family, business or community organization should undertake include the following:
  1. Sign up for local alertsdownload apps, and/or check access for wireless emergency alerts;
  2. Develop and test your Emergency Communication Plan;
  3. Assemble or update your emergency supply kit;
  4. Conduct a drill to practice emergency response actions;
  5. Participate in a preparedness discussion, training, or class;
  6. Collect and safeguard critical business and personal documents;
  7. Document property and get insurance for relevant hazards;
  8. Make property improvements to reduce potential injury and property damage.
  9. Include the welfare of your pets in all phases of family disaster planning.
