Yates County Public Health (YCPH) encourages everyone to begin or continue a process of learning about potential threats so we are better prepared to react during an attack, natural disaster or other emergency. While there is no way to predict what will happen, or what your personal circumstances will be, there are simple things you can do now to prepare yourself and your loved ones. Some of the things you can do to prepare for an emergency are based on three basic activities: Be Informed, Make a Plan and Have a Kit.
With a little planning, we all can be better prepared for the unexpected. GET READY NOW!
Additional information, samples of plans and recommended items to include in your emergency kit are available on www.ready.gov or in the YCPH Office, 417 Liberty Street Penn Yan.
