Prepare For Disaster

Preparing Makes Sense. Get Ready Now...

Are You Ready? An In-depth Guide to Citizen Preparedness is organized to help you through the process:
  • A series of worksheets to help you obtain information from the community that will form the foundation of your plan.
  • Guidance on specific content that you and your family will need to develop and include in your plan on how to escape from your residence.
  • Checklists of items to consider including in your disaster supplies kit that will meet your family’s needs following a disaster whether you are at home or at other locations.

Part 1 is also the gateway to the specific hazards and recovery information contained in Parts 2, 3, 4, and 5. Information from these sections should be read carefully and integrated in your emergency plan and disaster supplies kit based on the hazards that pose a threat to you and your family.

The Arizona Emergency Information Network (AzEIN) is the state's online source for real-time emergency updates, preparedness information and related resources. When making your plan, think about the people and places in your daily lives. Talk to close friends and family about their plans. Develop plans together and include versions for work, school and other places you spend time. The more options you can think of now, the more prepared you will be later.

Everyone should have a plan...The likelihood of you and your family surviving a house fire depends as much on having a working smoke detector and an exit strategy, as on a well-trained fire department. The same is true for surviving a terrorist attack or other emergency. We must have the tools and plans in place to make it on our own, at least for a period of time, no matter where we are when disaster strikes. Just like having a working smoke detector, preparing for the unexpected makes sense. Get ready now.

Disaster prevention includes modifying your home to strengthen it against storms so that you can be as safe as possible. It also includes having the supplies on hand to weather the storm. The suggestions provided here are only guides. You should use common sense in your disaster prevention.


Disaster can strike quickly and without warning. It can force you to evacuate your neighborhood, workplace or school or can confine you to your home. What would you do if basic services – water, gas, electricity or telephones – were cut off?

Local officials and relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster, but they cannot reach everyone right away. The best way to make you and your family safer is to be prepared before disaster strikes.

Our pets our part of our families, and emergencies come in many forms, they may require anything from a brief absence from your home to permanent evacuation. Each type of disaster requires different measures to keep your pets safe. The best thing you can do for yourself and your pets is to be prepared.
