Emergency Management

“Emergency preparedness is everyone’s responsibility. Prepare your emergency survival kit today for a safer tomorrow.”

Knowing the risks and developing practical plans can help reduce fear and aid in recovery from an emergency situation.  Ensuring business continuity, protecting information and updating emergency plans are all crucial in assuring community preparedness.

All levels of government have an important role to play in emergency preparedness and response. But emergency preparedness starts with the individual.
