Individuals & Families

Is your family prepared?

Tsunami, earthquakes, wildres, heavy snowfall, acts of terrorism and floods come to mind when people are asked about a disaster. Some of those things may not come to pass here in Middletown, and even though we all know what can happen … are we prepared? Disaster can strike quickly and without warning. Can we protect ourselves and our family? Do we have a plan? Where will your family be when disaster strikes? They could be anywhere — at home, at work, at school or on the road Will you know if your children are safe? What if your child has special health care needs?

In an emergency, we all have to plan to be self sucient, and possibly spend several days without utilities, medical aid, transportation or communications. 

Families can cope with disaster by preparing in advance and working together as a team. Being prepared is your responsibility and best protection. Following is helpful information in preparing yourself and your family in the event of a disaster.
