Whether it’s a wildfire in Northern Arizona or flash flooding in Phoenix, every Arizonan needs to be prepared.
Emergency preparedness starts with a commitment from families, schools and businesses and entire communities to take three simple steps—Prepare a Plan, Make a Kit, and Be Informed.
These three steps can help reduce the impact of an emergency on you, your property and your community.
PREPARE A PLAN
Write and rehearse family communication and preparedness plans that identify a family meeting place, account for special needs, and include local emergency numbers and an “out-of-town” contact.
MAKE A KIT
Gather enough non-perishable food and clean water to sustain you and your family for at least three days. Other suggested kit items include first aid supplies, a flashlight, a weather radio and batteries.
Learn about the threats in your community and contact your local emergency management office to learn more about readiness planning. Visit and bookmark www.azein.gov for real-time emergency updates and preparedness information.
