Emergency Management

september is national preparedness month

Get Ready Garland! Kickoff this season by making sure your “home” team is prepared with everything they need by checking out these links: 

  • Make a Plan - Have plans and supplies in place to make it on your own, at least for a limited time, no matter where you are.
  • Build a Kit - After an emergency, you may need to survive on your own for several days. Being prepared means having your own food, water and other supplies to last for several days.
  • Protect Family and Property - Make sure you’re prepared by documenting your property, ensuring that you have the insurance coverage you need, and staying informed by registering for alerts.
  • Teaching Youth - Whether you’re a kid or teen yourself, a parent or loved one, or work with youth, ensure you have the tools and information to help before, during and after disasters.
