Emergency preparedness

Our changing climate is already bringing more volatile weather to Minnesota: 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, we all live with new uncertainties, as well as rising seas. 

 

 

That's why we hosted a community panel on emergency preparedness, with local experts offering readiness tips and training opportuni-ties. Read a summary 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.

Think ahead about your own bug-out bag needs and contingency plans, and remember that knowing our neighbors boosts our resilience as a community.
