THE NEED TO PREPARE IS REAL

Disasters disrupt hundreds of thousands of lives every year. Each disaster has lasting effects, both to people and property.  If a disaster should occur in Franklin County, local first responders and disaster-relief organizations will try to help. 

Unfortunately, these organizations may not be able to reach everyone quickly or they may need to focus their efforts elsewhere.  Therefore, you and your family need to be ready to take care of yourself until help does arrive. 

Build a disaster supply kit for you, your family and your pets for at least 3 days.
