Public Health Emergency Preparedness
Emergency Preparedness is a tool. Planning in advance of any "emergency" helps lessen the impact of the emergency on people, property, and the community we live in. By planning before an emergency you will have the best possible answers and choices all ready for you to review and select from.
You can download the FEMA mobile app for disaster resources, weather alerts, and safety tips or sign up for preparedness text messages by texting PREPARE to 43362 to receive preparedness tips (msg/data rates apply).
The American Public Health Association has multiple fact sheets in English and Spanish to help our community prepare for an emergency.
