Preparedness and recovery

Disasters and hazards can occur anywhere at any time and result in significant disruption to lives and communities.

Being prepared means being responsible to take care of you and your family’s personal needs (food, water, medical, clothing, shelter) for a period of at least three days after the event.

  1. Build a Kit – supplies for all family members, including pets
  2. Make a Plan – what to do and staying connected
  3. Be Informed – what kind of disasters can affect your community

Recovery after a disaster is a long-term commitment that involves knowing what resources are available and how to access these resources.
