Critical Information to remember
Who to call?
Put together an Emergency Kit
Locate your Emergency Kit and add any medications, important papers, special items for babies and the elderly, clothing, food and water.
Your emergency kit should contain all the essential items you will need if you need to evacuate or become isolated. These items may include medications, important documents and family photos.

Never enter floodwater
The major cause of death during floods is by people entering floodwater. This includes driving, riding and walking through floodwater and children playing in floodwater.
Our volunteers advise people to NEVER enter floodwater.
Floodwater may be deeper and faster flowing than it appears and often contains hidden snags and debris.
