Emergency Preparedness Checklist

The next time disaster strikes, you may not have much time to act.  Prepare now for a sudden emergency.

Learn how to protect yourself and cope with disaster by planning ahead.  This checklist will help you get started.  Discuss these ideas with your family, then prepare an emergency plan.  Post the plan where everyone will see it--on the refrigerator or bulletin board.  For additional information about how to prepare for hazards in your community, contact your local emergency management or civil defense office and American Red Cross chapter.  

For a complete guide to preparedness download the Disaster Preparedness Brochure on the DC ARES web page.

In the event of a disaster, be sure to listen to a live radio station in your area.  Most stations are  automated  and will not have up to date information.  In the Roseburg area listen to KQEN 1240 AM, it is a live station and updates will be current. In the Reedsport area listen to KDUN 1030 AM.
