Do you know how to Shelter in Place, or Evacuate?  Ask yourself what you should take with you, and if there are any special things you need to think about before you make a plan.....  How about your pets, an out of State contact in case you and your family are separated, or does anyone have special needs like medications or will need help with transportation if you are unavailable.  

Call your County Emergency Manager at 783-0327 if you need help.  Make that plan today, you'll be glad you did.
