EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS CHECKLIST
FIND OUT WHAT KIND OF DISASTERS COULD EFFECT YOU:
Contact the City of Humble Emergency Management Division.
Ask about the types of natural or technological (hazardous materials, major transportation accidents, terrorist at- tacks, etc.) disasters most likely to occur in the greater Houston/Galveston area. Request information on how to prepare for each occurrence.
Ask about the Emergency Alert System (EAS). EAS broad- casts are activated by local authorities when there is an emergency.
Please pay close attention to these messages.
Ask about animal care after a disaster. Animals may not be allowed inside emergency shelters. Only working dogs will be allowed to accompany a disabled person. Shelters may be provided for pets but a portable kennel and supplies for the animal may be required.
Ask about special assistance for the elderly and disabled, if needed. The Humble Division of Emergency Management maintains a data base of special needs residents in the City Limits so that arrangements can be made to assist these persons during a disaster. To register a Special Needs resi- dent, contact the City of Humble Fire Marshal’s and Emer- gency Management Office at 281 446 4928.
Ask about evacuation and safe inland traffic routes.
