Emergency Preparedness

WILMAPCO would like to help you prepare for an emergency that would require you to evacuate your home.  This information has been gathered from various sites.  If you have any questions or suggestions, please forward them to WILMAPCO.

 

How To Plan

There are several sites that provide up-to-date information in times of crisis.

 

FEMA: In Depth Guide to Preparedness
American Red Cross: Preparedness
Preparedness for the Disabled
Independent Living Resource Center: Preparedness for the Disabled Checklist
Dept. of Homeland Security: Preparedness

 

Make sure you have a plan.  Energizer has a checklist for your family.

 

The Next of Kin Registry (NOKR) provides a free proactive service to store your emergency contacts, next of kin and vital medical information that would be critical to emergency response agencies.
