Personal preparedness includes being ready for emergencies at home, in your car or anywhere else you may spend time. Personal preparedness lessens the impact of disasters on families, on workplaces and on communities. What you do now can help you and your family better respond to and recover from disaster, as well as contribute to the overall readiness of Washington County.
What basic supplies would you need to survive until more help comes following an emergency? A three-day emergency supply kit is a basic tool for providing peace of mind, comfort and the survival needs of you, your family, and pets in the face of a disaster.
We will all rely on each other during disasters. Take a CPR class, get to know your neighbors and how you can all work better together before and after a disaster. Volunteering is also one great option to increase overall community preparedness.
