Serving Your Community

In an effort to help your community prepare for an emergency or disaster you should:
  • Learn about the disasters (natural and man made), hazards and emergencies your community is most likely to face and the appropriate response to each.
  • Familiarize yourself with the emergency response plans, drills, and exercises that will benefit your community emergency preparedness efforts.
  • Find out what your community is doing to prepare for emergencies and how you can help.
The following are several government and non-profit websites that can help you better serve your community as a volunteer.
