npr.brightspotcdn_0.png

In the event of an emergency, quick and accurate information is key. Are you signed up to receive emergency alerts in your county? 

Other tips:

  • Follow your local public safety agencies on social media. Many entities use Facebook and Twitter to share important, up-to-date information with the public.
  • Follow along with your preferred local media source — whether it's the radio, newspaper, television, or online. Most news agencies also post daily updates on their Facebook and Twitter accounts.
  • Try to keep three-quarters of a tank of gas in your car at all times.
  • Be aware of road closures that may affect your travel. Have physical maps on hand.
