Emergency Management

Be Prepared

Hurricanes

Hurricane Season Begins June 1. Make sure you and your family are prepared!  Rain, wind, water, even tornadoes could happen far inland from where a hurricane or tropical storm makes landfall.  Start preparing now!

Emergency Supply Kits

After an emergency, you may need to survive on your own for several days. Being prepared means having your own food, water, and other supplies (PDF) to last for at least 72 hours. A disaster supplies kit is a collection of basic items your household may need in the event of an emergency.  (Planee anticipadamente para los desastres! Hable con su familial)

Prepare for Extreme Heat

Extreme heat is a period of high heat and humidity with temperatures above 90 degrees for at least two to three days. In extreme heat your body works extra hard to maintain a normal temperature, which can lead to death. In fact, extreme heat is responsible for the highest number of annual deaths among all weather-related hazards. Read more about how you can prepare.

Prepare for Cold Weather
