Are you and your family prepared for emergencies?
Emergencies and disasters strike quickly and without warning, causing you to evacuate your neighborhood or confining you to your home. Whether faced with a family emergency or regional disaster, you are responsible for your family preparedness and disaster planning, and your efforts in planning will play a large role in how well you and your family “survive” the event. Local officials and relief workers will be activated in a disaster, but they cannot reach everyone right away. Medical help may not arrive at all, and 9-1-1 will be totally overwhelmed in a major disaster. It takes everyone doing their part to ensure they are prepared.

Emergency Services Program
Emergency Services staff strive to strengthen the communities’ ability to prevent, prepare for, respond to and recover from adverse public health threats and catastrophic events. We are continuously working on developing effective operational plans which we use to guide our preparedness and response activities. Another vital function of our program is to develop partnerships with local response agencies, hospitals and other health organizations. Working together as a group helps us approach preparedness as a whole community and learn how to reduce the impact of emergency events in our lives.
