Prepare for disaster before it happens

With wildfires being fought in our region, it is important during this time of heightened awareness to prepare for other emergencies or natural disasters. Ensure your household is ready for emergencies by building a “go kit” with essential disaster survival items; consolidating and securing important documents; and by going over safety plans with members of your household for a variety of potential emergencies.
