After a disaster, you may be without power and many of the other services you rely on (water, sewer, phone, cell phone, and businesses). Immediate response may not be possible, so you must be prepared to be self-reliant.


People who are disabled or in poor health (either mentally or physically) or those who are without the support of family or friends should plan ahead for an emergency. They may need special assistance from family members, friends, neighbors or social service agencies. Please ask for help if you need it and volunteer to help those who do.
