Battalion Chief Kris Hubbard is responsible for managing the Emergency Management and Disaster Preparedness programs.
Emergencies can strike at any time, so it’s important to be prepared and have a plan. There are real benefits to being prepared. Being prepared can reduce fear, anxiety, and losses that accompany disasters. The need to prepare is real. You should know how to respond to severe weather or any disaster that could occur in your area – earthquakes, extreme cold, flooding, or terrorism. You should also be ready to be self-sufficient for at least three days. This may mean providing for your own shelter, first aid, food, water, and sanitation.
