Disasters can happen at any time. The potential of severe weather, technological emergencies, public health emergencies or a hazardous materials accident are just a few of the would-be disasters that have raised concerns among many Atlantic County residents. While Atlantic County is working to protect the community in the event of an emergency, we are urging everyone to take responsibility for the safety of their family and be prepared for all emergencies. Remember: Preparedness begins with me.
In an emergency, your safety and the safety of your family may depend on decisions made in a few seconds. This is why it is so critical to be prepared - have a plan and supplies, remain calm, stay informed, and be ready to activate your disaster plans.
