Are you prepared? Emergencies and disasters can happen anywhere, anytime, often without warning. Community Emergency Management Coordinator (CEMC) and Fire Chief Bruce Montone is encouraging residents to make a family plan and prepare a kit.
“Sit down with your family to discuss any special needs requirements that you may have for your family, develop a communications plan in case you are separated during an emergency and pack a kit so that you and your family are prepared to be self sufficient for 3 days or 72 hours”, said Chief Montone.
