Emergency Preparedness

Do you feel you and your family are prepared for an emergency? Does your household have enough food, water, medications and pet food to last for several days in the event of a shortage of supplies? Are your vehicles stocked with extra water, batteries, a flashlight and a change of clothes? What will you do if forced to evacuate your home?

In times of natural disaster or even a pandemic, federal, state and local agencies recommend that families take measures to remain prepared in the event of an emergency. This action includes proper storage of non-perishable food items, water, medications, infant formula, diapers, clothing and more.
