Community Emergency & Disaster Preparedness

Join us for our Disaster Prep Workshop September 12, 2019

Preparing yourself and your home is essential.  A good starting point for all disaster preparedness is to make sure you are prepared for 72 hours of self survival.  In other words, do you have enough food, water, medicine, batteries, cash, pet food, and other essential items that you can use in the absence of public utilities (electricity, water, and natural gas) for three or more days?
