Emergency Planning and Preparedness - North West

Manmade or natural disasters and emergencies can occur with little notice and lasting consequences. Families and businesses are encouraged to understand the risks, make an emergency plan and prepare supplies.

Emergency management and response is handled by several community agencies and is coordinated by County and municipal governments. See also Government Services Information.

These organizations will help individuals and business plan for the unexpected. Some provide guidance in the development of emergency plans and deliver emergency preparedness workshops and training.

These services serve all or part of North West
