Sheltering in place

In certain disaster situations, you may be asked by emergency management officials to 'shelter in place' rather than to evacuate your home to seek shelter in an alternate location. So that you can safely shelter in place in the event you receive an advisory to do so, below is information on what you and your family need to have on hand to be prepared.

Prepare for the unexpected

Devastating acts, such as the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, have left many concerned about the possibility of future incidents in the United States and their potential impact. They have raised uncertainty about what might happen next, increasing stress levels. Nevertheless, there are things you can do to prepare for the unexpected and reduce the stress that you may feel now and later should another emergency arise. Taking preparatory action can reassure you and your children that you can exert a measure of control even in the face of such events.
