When a disaster strikes, you and your family will need a cache of supplies on hand to make it through. Have you thought about building a kit? What are the recommendations to get started and how long should you be prepared for? Click on Build a Kit above to get more details.
Planning for disasters is not just something that just we do in Emergency Management, it is also something that needs to be done as a family. Have you decided where you will meet if you have to evacuate your home? Have you decided who will be your Out-of-Area contact for your family communications plan? Click Make A Plan above for more resources and templates on how to get started with planning.Stay Informed
How will you and your family stay up-to-date on what’s happening during a disaster? We recommend having multiple options ready to go in case any one of them is actually impacted by the event. One way to ensure you get notifications about disasters in your area is to sign up with Alert Spokane.Get Involved
There are many ways to get involved in your community--volunteering during or after a disaster is one way, or you can find an opportunity with an organization you are interested in. To volunteer as an Emergency Worker with our office, please see our opportunities in the volunteering section of the website. To volunteer with other organizations throughout the Greater Spokane area, Volunteer Spokane lists numerous opportunities.
