Emergency Preparedness

 The National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration 

National Weather Service Offices:

Preparedness means not only having the appropriate gear and supplies necessary to cope with emergencies, but also having a plan for your family to follow in these situations. An important component of this plan should be how family members would communicate, keeping in mind that in some circumstances, regular phone service and cell phone service may be unavailable. Below are several links to information on emergency preparedness for you, your family, and your pets:
