Prepare for disasters of all kinds by stocking up supplies in case of power outages and road closures, make sure your family knows what you expect them to do if an emergency occurs, and prepare to check on and help your loved ones and neighbors if needed. Make sure you have a “go kit” of essential items if you must evacuate. Remember to prepare for your pets’ and livestock’s needs. See our hazard and preparedness links for more information on emergency preparedness.
