Emergency preparedness

Minnesota's changing climate is already bringing more floods, severe storms, heat waves, temperature swings, droughts, and wildfire risks. Our seasons are shifting, and so are our plant, animal, and insect species. Worldwide, those trends are seen, as well as rising seas. That's why we hosted a community panel on emergency preparedness. Read about it in the Park Bugle: "Preparation and attitude are key assets in dealing with disasters" (Dec. 2017).

Households should be ready both to shelter in place for up to three days and to evacuate with three days' worth of supplies. Our Bug-Out Beetle shows one version of a simple emergency kit; the other list is printed on the city of St. Paul's model kit (blue). Think ahead about your own bug-out bag needs and contingency plans, and remember that knowing our neighbors boosts our resilience as a community.
