Emergency Preparedness

Communities throughout the Pacific Northwest are subject to many potential natural and man-made disasters. While we hope that such occurrences never happen, it has been shown time and time again that being prepared for disasters is wise and prudent.

Ready.gov provides disaster planning guides for families, communities and businesses. Ready.gov is a good starting point for anyone interested in planning ahead for disasters.

Here we have informational materials available from the Washington State Military Department/Emergency Management Division in PDF format available for downloading.

For further information about natural or man-made disasters or disaster preparedness planning, please contact Lewis County Emergency Management, or follow any of the Links provided under the Emergency Preparedness Links section.
