Happy New Year from the Ready Team
This year's Resolve to be Ready campaign focuses on Seasonal Preparedness. The Ready campaign encourages families to prepare throughout the year for all weather hazards during winter, spring, fall and summer.

If you haven’t developed a family communications plan yet, this is the perfect time to get started.  If you have a plan, it is a perfect time to review it with your family.

Part of the planning process is talking about where you will meet. 

  • If you need to evacuate your home, due to a fire or gas leak, where immediately outside of your home will you all meet?

  • If you need to evacuate your subdivision, where will you all meet up?  Is there a local business, school, library, or church for you and your family to reunite at?

  • If you need to evacuate your town, where will you all meet at?  Is there a shopping center, school, library, or church in a neighboring community where you can meet?

For information on how to prepare yourself and your family for winter check out Snow Storms/Blizzards and Extreme Cold under our Preparedness tab.
