 Are you ready? Think. Act. Survive. 
Disaster can strike quickly and without warning.
Hurricanes. Flooding. Explosions. Terrorism.
Yet, many do not know how to protect themselves or their families and neighbors.  
A Prepared Community is a Safe Community.
Take action today and learn how to plan for and be trained to respond to a catastrophic event, be it natural or manmade. Because professional emergency first responders may not always be on site immediately, trained citizens can help save lives and protect property in their communities in the aftermath of a disaster.
