Resident Responsibilities in Emergency Preparedness

An important concept to realize is that in a widespread emergency where many citizens are affected, emergency services will be overwhelmed and unable to respond to every call for assistance. The Federal recommendation is that every person be prepared to look after themselves and family members for a minimum of 4 days. Are you prepared for extensive power cuts in mid-winter, no food deliveries to the supermarkets, an interruption to the water supply, or having to leave your home in a hurry?

If you feel you may not be ready for such a situation now is the time for you to make some preparations along with putting together a “Go Kit”.
