About

Join us for a fun-filled, FREE day of safety demos, prizes, giveaways & more!!
Many of us don't have a disaster plan in place. With September being National Preparedness Month, it's a good time to consider what you would do in the case of various emergency situations. Relief and recovery are essential, but preparation prior to a disaster is important too.

The aim is to encourage individuals and families to take important steps like making a family communication plan, building an emergency supply kit, learning risks & responses, and getting involved in preparedness in your community.

Fire Safety
Be prepared and take preventative measures to reduce the likelihood of unwanted fires. This is necessary to protect lives and property. Once unwanted fires break out, plans are needed to quickly move people to safety, and to control or extinguish fires.

Community Safety
Community safety is needed to keep those who are at the most risk safe within the community. Communities equipped to cope with, and have increased capacity to resist, crime and anti-social behavior provide a better quality of life for everyone.

Vehicle Safety
There are many aspects to being safe on the road, including preventive car maintenance, driving skills, avoiding unsafe areas, and proper seat belt or child seat usage. Driving your vehicle while anticipating road hazards and being aware of drivers around you, is fundamental to being safe on the road.

Emergency Safety
Plan ahead and always know what steps you will take to ensure you are safe before, during and after an emergency or natural disaster. Be prepared for natural disasters—floods, blizzards, hurricanes, tornadoes and earthquakes. Be prepared for man-made disasters—explosions, fires, chemical spills and biological attacks.

Home Safety
Be aware and understand the potential dangers in and around the home. Know how to prevent common hazards in the home that can lead to slips and falls, house fires, carbon monoxide exposure, hazardous waste exposure, accidental burns, suffocation, drowning and other injuries.

Personal Safety
Take measures to avoid situations where you may be at risk. Always be aware of your surroundings to reduce the likelihood of being victim of a crime. The more you know about personal safety, the better you will be able to protect yourself and your loved ones from harm.
