Emergency: ARE YOU READY
FEMA has a website designed to educate and empower Americans to prepare for and respond to emergencies including natural and man-made disasters called Ready.gov
The site asks individuals to do three key things: (1) build an emergency supply kit, (2) make a family emergency plan and (3) be informed about the different types of emergencies that could occur and their appropriate responses.
Learn how to prepare for emergencies before they strike at Ready.gov or America's Preparathon.
|Webster is a Storm Ready City

Service helps communities with communications and safety skills needed
