Preparing for an Emergency Step 1 - Know Your Risk

The first step to understanding risk in our community is to learn about the potential hazards. This website is designed to provide you with an overview on:

  • Preparing for any hazard
  • Staying safe during an incident
  • Recovering from an incident
  • Increasing resiliency through preparedness

Our Pathways to Preparedness and All-Hazards Readiness Guide are companion documents to the website, and are available at our office if you would like copies for your community.

Resources for Risk Determination

Preparedness can reduce fear and increase resiliency from the impacts of disasters. Communities, families, and individuals should know what to do during an emergency situation.

Review the hazard-specific links for information on what to do before, during, or after a disaster, or request a presentation from our office.
