Disaster Preparedness

Disaster can strike quickly and without warning. It can force you to evacuate your neighborhood or keep you in your home. What would you do if basic services, such as water, gas, electricity, or telephones were cut off? You and your family should be prepared to take care of yourselves for two weeks or more following a major disaster. The Puget Sound area is susceptible to wind and winter storms, chemical spills, floods, fires, earthquakes, mud slides, train derailment, tsunamis and terrorism.

Preparing for an emergency doesn't have to be overwhelming. Stay informed, make a plan, build a kit and get involved.
