How Should You Prepare?

Flood Preparation

Flood Preparation

While public health staff and other first responders such as fire, police and EMS plan and train for emergencies, individuals must also be prepared for a variety of emergency situations. For any individual, being prepared begins with three easy steps: Build a Kit, Make a Plan, Be Informed.

As we learned during the hurricanes of 2005, the windstorm of 2008 and H1N1 in 2009-10, emergency assistance from the federal government or other first response agencies might not be immediately available during a large scale emergency or disaster. That is why it is important for individuals to take steps to prepare themselves and their families so they can sustain themselves in the days immediately following an emergency.
