Indio Emergency Preparedness Program

Disaster can strike at any time... 

Natural disasters such as flood, fire, earthquake, pandemic and windstorm affect thousands of people across the nation each year.  In order to better prepare and protect ourselves, our families and our community from the impacts of disaster, each of us should be aware of area hazards. 

Being aware of area hazards and knowing what to do for protection will help each of us to take effective steps to prepare beforehand and aid in recovery after the event. 

Some things that can be done in advance to prepare for disastrous events, such as assembling a supply kit and developing a family emergency plan, are the same for all types of hazards. However, each emergency is unique and knowing the actions to take for each hazard will influence decisions and preparations made. By learning about area hazards, we can better prepare ourselves to efficiently and effectively react in an emergency. 

Be informed. Plan ahead. Take action.
