Emergency preparedness makes everyday sense

Summertime in the Pacific Northwest can be carefree... if you're prepared. Keeping you and your family (including pets) safe can be accomplished in three easy steps:

  1. Create an emergency preparedness kit with at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food and water for your home and office
  2. Make a plan and practice the plan with your family and those who depend on you
  3. Stay informed and know the weather approaching so you are prepared for whatever comes our way
