About disaster response

When local leaders and officials determine the safety of citizens returning to their community, the decisions they make are based on several factors.  These may include: road conditions (closures), public safety, availablity of electricity (downed power lines), clean drinking water (broken water/sewer lines), broken gas connections, etc.  During this process, lingering hazards could cause delays for those returning home after a naturalor catastrophic disaster.Once officials in your area have declared it safe for you to return there are many things you should consider when reentering your community and start the clean-up process.

Please use the resources we have provided to assist you before, during and after an emergency or disaster.
