How to Prepare

Natural and humanmade disasters impact each county's infrastructure, peoples’ welfare, and the economy. In the warmer months, drought, extreme heat, brush fires, tornadoes, flooding, and hail threaten. Winter brings snow, ice, and dangerous wind chills. All can cause tree branches and powerlines to snap, hazardous driving conditions, and injury or loss of life. While these events can’t be eliminated, planning can improve both response and recovery.

Community officials and members finalized a plan in 2023 to help our communities anticipate, withstand, and recover from hazard events common to our area. Help prepare yourself your family by preparing for disaster before it strikes.
