Recent significant events, such as rain induced flooding, increased water levels in the Great Lakes, and COVID-19 have all contributed to an increased awareness of the need for appropriate public safety measures. Everyone is responsible for the health, safety, and well being of our community.
All municipalities, large or small, are vulnerable to major community emergencies such as tornadoes, floods, blizzards, and power outages. When an emergency of this scale occurs, local municipalities are usually the first level of government to respond. However, municipalities are not alone in emergency response. Being prepared, as an individual citizen, and knowing what to do and what to expect will help you and your family to cope until help arrives, should an emergency or disaster affect your community.
